This was a great game. Even though Shawn Estes didn't actually hit Clemens with a pitch, he hit him harder with the home run he hit off him. Then even Mike Piazza got in on the fun and hit one off Clemens.

Boy this was a great game. Finally the little guys from Queens beat the Bronx Booers. Estes shows Clemens that this is payback time while Piazza also kills a pitch, and it was a day when Mets fans and players could have sang the Twisted Sister song "We're Not Gonna Take It!"

This was the afternoon of revenge. Roger Clemens was coming back to Shea and Estes hit a homer off him and, of course, so did Piazza and the Mets won 8-0.

In my entry last summer I neglected to mention many important things about this game. First of all, it was the craziest crowd I've ever been with (and I've been to an Eagles game) and everyone was talking about one thing: retaliation. Did Estes have the guts to throw at Clemens?
In the third inning, our question was answered as Estes threw behind the back of Clemens. The response to it was a chorus of boos from both Mets and Yankees fans and the fans got so insane that things started to happen.
After Estes hit the homer off Clemens and we all laughed at him, a fan holding a Bud fell out of the Loge level and landed on the screen. He then proceeded to stand on it and wave to the fans before climbing back up into his seats. Then Piazza hit a bomb off Clemens, as we all knew he would and we knew the Mets were gonna win this game.
In the eighth, however, a fan ran onto the field and ran all the way to Bernie Williams in center before he was tackled by security. If I could go to the game one more time I'd do it.

Awesome game. This was my friend Jay's first Mets game, and this turned him into a Mets fan to this day. I love getting a random ticket and it turning out to be a great game. You had Clemens, Yankees, and all of the hoopla. Estes didn't REALLY hit him, but he did hit a homer, and magically Clemens came out with a leg injury... cough cough. Great game all the way!

Best Mets-Yankees game I have seen to date. I was watching the game on Fox on my new tv. Piazza hit a home run and Estes hit one off the evil Clemens. 8-0. Too bad all Mets-Yankees games can't be like that.
