METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE APRIL 6, 2006 GAME:Putbeds 1986
April 19, 2006
After going to Shea several times in '05 and NOT seeing Pedro pitch in any of them, I didn't take that chance and went to Shea on Thursday Night. They tell me that when Pedro Martinez takes the mound, it's an event in itself! And they're right! It wasn't vintage Pedro but it was enough: 6 IP 4 H 5R (4 earned) 5 BB 6 K's and 3 HBP including 2x to Jose Guillen who tried to attack Pedro with his bat but was stopped as both benches and bullpens cleared. Later on, Nats P Felix Rodriguez gets ejected for hitting Paul LoDuca and Frank Robinson rips a new one to the 3 umps (the other ump Ted Barrett got hurt and had to leave the game). Anyway, the 2 Carlos (Delgado & Beltran) smack dingers and the Mets win 10-5. And they play each other 16 more times in 2006, Oh Joy!!!!

This was a great game. Delgado and Beltran both hit homers and Delgado is the scariest hitter we've had since, well, Piazza 5 years ago. Pedro wasn't incredible, but that Jose Guillen incident made the game great.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
