METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 2, 1965 GAME:

Next to last day of the season and the Mets got shut out for an entire doubleheader that lasted 27 innings. Bunning won the opening game shutout and Chris Short pitched the nightcap and struck out an incredible number of Mets (about 18?) in his 15 innings of work. The 0-0 tie forced the two teams to finish the season the next day with another doubleheader and they lost both games but at least scored a run each game.

I used to score all games while sitting in front of the TV (OK, I was a nerd back then.) I remember Rob Gardner fanning a bunch of Phillies and going 15 innings or so. Chris Short was unhittable but then again, against this porous lineup, even Buster Narum would dominate!

I recall watching the game on television and seem to remember that both starting pitchers, Chris Short and Rob Gardner, pitched 15 innings, a feat that would be unheard of in this day and age.

Do anyone remember why the game was halted after 18 innings? I don't believe that the National League had a curfew rule at that time, unlike the American League.

I have been a lifelong Mets fan and this particular game sticks in my mind as one of the most fascinating that I can remember.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.
