METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 6, 2000 GAME:Happy Recap
September 7, 2000
UGH! What a miserable game. After a hot August, the Mets suddenly couldn't win at all in September. It looked like they would win this one, though. Bobby J. Jones didn't make it out of the third inning, but Bobby M. Jones relieved him, and pitched four strong innings. The bullpen was handed an 8-5 lead, but it all came apart in the 8th. Turk Wendell and John Franco gave up two runs, and, with the bases loaded, Armando Benitez came into the game and on the first pitch gave up a demoralizing grand slam to Benito Santiago. The Mets had "September swoons" in 1998 and 1999, and it looks like they're doing it again.

This game was horrible. I remember the Mets were up 8-5 after the 7th or 8th inning and they blew it.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
