The Pirates' 10-4 victory celebration over the New York Mets at Forbes Field was subdued after shortstop Gene Alley was hit by a pitch on the side of the head in the fourth inning. Alley needed nine stitches but was expected to be out only a couple of days. The Pirates had a 6-0 lead when Alley was hit and extended that advantage to 9-0 by the fifth.

Roberto Clemente went 3 for 5, drove in two runs and scored once. He threw out Mets left fielder Ron Swoboda at the plate after Swoboda tried to score from first on a double.

The Pirates (66-46) raised their lead to 1 1/2 games over the second-place San Francisco Giants (66-49).

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!
