METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 6, 2001 GAME:Jared K
October 4, 2005
Ahh, yet another one of my infamous Mets- Phillies games I attended down in Philly with my crazy rabid Phillies fan uncle. Usually he gets us great seats, but these seats were way back in right field, couldn't even see half the field. Good thing too, the way the Mets played that day.
The Phillies got a complete game win from some second rate scrub named Amaury Telemaco. Glendon Rusch got hammered early and often in the middle innings. The only other thing I remember from this suckfest was when Desi Relaford fielded a ball and tried to make this limp-wristed backhand shuffle manuever to Rey Ordonez on a double play ball. Of course it went into center field. How he didn't get charged for an error was beyond me.
This was the only time I ever left a non-blowout baseball game early. As I was leaving, I knew right there that the Mets had NO shot of getting back to the Series that year!!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
