Donn Clendenon led off the sixth inning with his fourth home run of the season as the Pirates defeated the New York Mets, 5-0, at Shea Stadium. Pitcher Vernon Law gave up three hits and went the distance for the Pirates (26-20). Law, who also hit a homer, captured the 150th victory of his career with five strikeouts. It was the fourth consecutive time Law shut out the Mets.

Roberto Clemente went 0 for 3, going hitless for the first time in his past six games.

On June 2, 1966 I went to my first Major League Baseball game and the only one I ever went to with my Dad. I was not quite 9. Just before the start of the game, while the players were warming up and playing catch my father took me on the field behind home plate. I remember looking at the big Pittsburgh Pirate players (Stargell, Clemente, Clendenon) and recall thinking how big their butts were. I also remember the ball being thrown like sling shots between the players. Someone came over and moved us to between home and first to be safer. A cameraman for WOR joined us and I remember him calling Yogi out of the dugout. Yogi came out, shook my hand and signed the back of my ticket. I went to about another hundred Mets games but this is the only ticket I don't have. I still have the scoresheet my dad used to keep score. Sometime in the 7th or 8th inning a man had an attack to our left and in front and they loosened the man's belt while he lay on his back and my Dad said let's go. My Dad died the following summer of cancer. He was 35.

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.
