METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 26, 2005 GAME:Joe Figliola
August 5, 2005
One errant throw was the difference between a 3-1 Mets win and what turned out to be a 4-3 loss. Why is Reyes, with two out, no one on base and the gangly Eric Byrnes at bat, doing his Nolan Ryan impersonation and gunning the ball 100mph to Woodward? I'm sorry, but the error should have gone to Jose; the throw was low and too fast to handle.
The blame, however, should not totally fall solely on Jose. Ishii should've reached down inside for something extra to get that third out. Instead, he threw fat fastballs and that contributed to the Mets' loss.
I felt bad for Woodward. Not only did he receive an error he didn't deserve, he also hit two seeds that were caught by the Rockies' shortstop. Add to the fact that I scored this game and you wind up with a pretty icky night.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
