An incredible come-from-behind victory in the ninth inning. Losing 5-1, the Mets score five runs on five singles and two walks to beat the Cubs at Shea.

The only comparable Mets games with come-from- behind ninth inning rallies that come to mind are:

8/28/62 when Marv Throneberry hits a pinch three- run homer to cap a four run rally to beat the Pirates 5-4 at the Polo Grounds.

6-14-80 when Steve Henderson hits a three-run homer to cap a five run rally to defeat the Giants 7-6 at Shea.

5-23-99 when the Mets beat Curt Schilling and the Phils at Shea 5-4 with all five runs in the 9th inning. I think Johnny Olerud got the game winning hit.

So far this is the most exciting game of the year. Down 5-1 in the ninth Mets score 5 to earn a dramatic 6-5 victory over the Cubs. 6 consecutive batters reached base either by a walk or a hit. Jason Vargas I thought pitched very well except for 1 inning where he gave up two 2-run home runs.

Great game, Vargas pitched very well except for that one inning where he gave up two home runs. Mets looked quiet all game until the 9th, one of the best games I ever been to in my life.

Even better was the fact Mets really used a "B" lineup, only Delgado and Green played as regulars, of course Wright got a huge pinch hit in the 9th

Boring first 8 innings. Excellent 9th. The 9th where they came back from 5 down could possibly go down as their best inning this year.

Somehow the C team came through with a few subs in the 9th. Never have been to a game with an inning so wild.

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.
