The Pirates (45-31) split a doubleheader with the New York Mets at Shea Stadium. The Mets nearly overcame a seven-run deficit but lost the first game, 8-7. The Pirates blew a three-run lead in the second to lose 9-8. Roberto Clemente went 2 for 4 and scored a run in the first game, and doubled in three at-bats in the second. He extended his hitting streak to 14 games.

Willie Stargell hit two home runs in the second game to give him 18 for the season. The Pirates hit 12 homers in the four-game series.

Chuck Hiller started inn LF in the first game and looked like Colonel Klink as he chased a Pirate drive into the corner, right near our seats in this hot 101 degree summer heat at Shea!

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
