METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 13, 2001 GAME:
June 14, 2001
The Mets were down 6-0 going into the 7th inning, but they came back to win 7-6 on another clutch hit by Tsuyoshi Shinjo in the 10th. It's the kind of win we haven't seen much of this year. Is this the beginning of the Mets march to the playoffs? I doubt it, but maybe it will give them some momentum going into the coming series with the Yankees. Glendon Rusch had another horrible outing - his ERA is up over 6.00, and over 9.00 on the road. He needs to do something to turn himself around.

Made the trip to Baltimore. Saw a great comeback, and a great stadium. Got Leiter's auto before the game. Overall, a great experience.

I drove down to the game, and sat next to the bullpen.. I told Chuck McElroy (former Met then on Orioles) that we needed him back on the team! He laughed, talked to some other guys during the game, which was a total blow-out for a while. Then the miraculous comeback, and the trip to Balitmore was totally worth it. One of the best games I ever attended!

This game came towards the end of a brutal, month-long road trip and was one of the few bright spots. The Mets offense was anemic and unclutch all year, so this was a welcome surprise.
