METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 25, 2005 GAME:Lee
April 27, 2005
Take that Atlanta! Last night I go on MLB.com and, even though Aaron Heilmans throwing a one-hitter at this point, the Braves are up 1-0 so they show a picture of Horacio Ramirez and talk about how well he's pitching when he's given up 5 hits. But Cliff Floyd's back and that 3-run bomb sealed it. We're getting first place.

Attended this game with my sister's boyfriend. We sat in a box that his employer owns. We were expecting a slugfest since Aaron Heilman was pitching. Braves had a 1-0 lead going into the sixth when Mike Piazza tied it on an RBI double, Cliff Floyd hit a three-run homer, and David Wright hit a two-run homer to help give the Mets a 5-1 lead. That still did not quiet the loud Braves' fan behind us. Him and the girl with him left early though.
Heilman pitched seven innings of two-hit, one-run ball. Braves would make a game out of it in the eighth and ninth off Roberto Hernandez and Braden Looper. It was a nailbiter until Looper finally got Julio Franco to ground out with the tying and go ahead runs on base to close out a 5-4 Mets' win. An awesome night.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
