June 20, 2001
What a heartbreaking game this was, I had traveled the 4 1/2 hour drive to miami for this game, in the ninth inning Piazza had fouled out to the firstbaseman with 2 on and 2 out in the 9th. the bottom half of the ninth was torture, the game ended on a ball bouncing of john franco's leg for the winning run, 1-0 a good game, won by the wrong team.

I remember watching this game on a sunny Sunday afternoon as I was being star of the show at my high school graduation party!
Only two things stick out about the game; the first being how dominant AJ Burnett was that day for the Marlins, and the second being the absolute inner strength I needed to restrain myself from choking a couple of my Yankees rooting relatives who giddily clapped as Preston Wilson slapped a ball of Franco's leg, beat out the ball to first, and enabled the winning run to score home. The wounds from the 2000 Subway Series loss were still very, very fresh at that time!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
