METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 24, 1966 GAME:

Bob P
May 24, 2006
In the second game of a doubleheader the Mets hand the Braves their first-ever loss in Atlanta. Mets starter Tug McGraw goes seven innings for his first win of the season. It was also Tug's first start of 1966.

Felipe Alou hit two homers in the game for the Braves, one off McGraw and one off Larry Bearnarth. Tug also gave up a solo homer to Dennis Menke.

With the Mets up 2-1 Tug was the first batter in the top of the seventh and drew a walk off Clay Carroll. One out later Tug came around to score after a Roy McMillan single and an error by Eddie Mathews. Ken Boyer hit a sac fly to drive in the fourth Mets run.

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.

Thank you!
