METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 18, 2003 GAME:Mike
October 22, 2003
This was the game where Steve Trachsel should have had a no-hitter. Trachsel was pitching a gem and had a perfect game going. In the 6th inning, someone tried to bunt to break up the perfect game, but to no avail. The next guy up was the opposing pitcher, some Taiwanese guy. He hit a double over Timo's head (which he should've caught). What made me mad, was that where I was sitting there were more people cheering the pitcher than Trachsel. I was in the upper deck, which was full of Taiwanse people from Flushing (who knew nothing about baseball). In the 9th inning, someone else got on base. It was initially ruled an infield hit, but after the game changed to an error. Trachsel ended up with a complete game one hitter. It was an enjoyable afternoon game, with a Mike Piazza home run. One of my more enjoyable games at Shea for a while. You know, I don't think the Mets will ever get a no-hitter. It's kind of like Boston or Chicago winning the World Series. And now with Bob Murphy retired, I wouldn't want anyone else to call the first Mets no-hitter!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
