METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 14, 2000 GAME:
January 7, 2002
Whenever they think about the risks of using pitchers on 3 days rest in the postseason, they'll think of Darryl Kile.
The home first went like this: Double for Timo, double for Alfonzo, double for Piazza, double for Ventura. One out later, double for Agbayani. My brother & I had great seats and the place was going crazy.
Still, we needed five innings of scoreless relief from Rusch, Franco and Bentiez, and a boneheaded error from Fernando Tatis, to finish them off.

The only Mets post-season game I've ever attended (so far) and they got reamed! Oh well, at least they won the series. I do not remember much about the game itself - it was over before it was over (sorry, Yogi). I do remember the LOUD music constantly blasting from the loudspeakers (Mrs. Jarvis, WHERE ARE YOU?), the unseasonably hot weather, the sight of Chris "Mad Dog" Russo putting on a Mets cap and shirt in the press box to applause from the fans underneath, and the fact that I felt deadened and numb as I left Shea. When my friends and I got to the car, I then realized, less-than-wonderful though the experience may have been on some levels (we lost, after all), I had nonetheless seen my first Mets post-season game. And then I was grateful. Thanks, friends (you know who you are) and I sincerely pray that there will be many many more nights like this in the future!

I was at this game and the Mets were killed 8-2 by Andy Benes (who would've thought) but I was ok with that because I still had tickets to Game 5, which now I knew I would get to go to.

I remember an old dude in the mezzanine screaming at Bobby Valentine for leaving Rick Reed in too long. He was pretty awful in this one, and I remember Timo getting a huge ovation after his heroics in St. Louis.
