METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 17, 2001 GAME:Happy Recap
May 17, 2001
Steve Trachsel gave up four homers in the third inning. I don't know if that's a club record or not, but I sure hope it is. I'd hate to think anyone ever gave up five! In the ninth inning, Desi Relaford, who had been at shortstop the whole game, takes the mound and pitches a perfect inning. This season has gone from bad to horrible, and now has suddenly become absurd.

Attended this game with my mom and we met my uncle and his girlfriend's son. Mets were off to an awful start and then newcomer Steve Trachsel only added ten gallons of fuel to the fire with his four home run inning. We left after the fifth inning. We later turned on the radio to hear the game and the first thing we heard was Gary Cohen say "this is just getting ridiculous." Of course, he was referring to the score at that point. So ironic that Trachsel has become one of their best starting pitchers over the last four seasons.

This was one of the funnier games I ever listened to on the radio. Trachsel was unfathomably terrible.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
