METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 30, 2006 GAME:john t greenpoint
July 30, 2006
The Braves were literally swept under the rug and out of the division race by Carlos Beltran. Beltran was just an animal in this series hitting 4 home runs one of them which came in today's game was a grand slam. Beltran now has 32 home runs on the season. Last year he only hit 16! Felt bad for Tom Glavine though; he was staked to a 7-run lead in the second inning and could not even go 5 innings. Maybe he should get a month off just like Pedro.

Second game I attended in two days during a weekend trip to Atlanta. A good friend of mine named Lauren accompanied us. We had to sit in the upper deck this time, but it was good to be out of the sun. The Mets made quick work of Chris James, as they knocked him out in the second inning. Carlos Beltran had another two-homer game, including a grand slam. Unfortunately, Tom Glavine looked like his old bad self against his former team. However, the bullpen held it down en route to the Mets' first ever sweep at Turner Field and clinching of their first ever winning seasonal record at Turner. I also should mention the real awesome cab driver on the way to the game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
