The weather was disgusting but the Mets still managed to pull this one out against the Nationals. SEO SUCKS! I've been saying that ever since he started pitching for the Mets a few years ago but maybe I'm wrong. Incredible for him- held down a first place team and got a hit and two RBI's of his own. And Victor Diaz-that guy's an animal. When Cameron comes back they won't need him so they should trade him and Kaz to the Braves and get Marcus Giles. See, I should be their GM.

ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports that in this game, Nationals reliever Joe Horgan became the first pitcher since the dead-ball era to strike out the side while allowing six runs in an inning!

It was cold and rainy that morning but the game ended up being played anyway. It was my nephew Robert's 11th birthday and I wrote to the Mets in advance to get his name on the scoreboard. It happened in the 5th inning. All 6 of us (me, my sister, her b-f, nephew, his friend and our family friend Kathy. Me & Kathy are Robert's godparents and we schooled him early on to wear and support the Mets. We left in the 8th inning but the game was well in hand & I got to see yet another NL team in the Nationals at Shea for the 1st time.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
