METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 20, 2010 GAME:Jared K
August 23, 2011
My wife and I took an impromptu long weekend because we were both working ludicrous 60+ hour weeks at our jobs at the time and had done bupkis for the summer except slave away. To get away from it all for a while, and get a sliver of fun in before the summer ran out, we drove out to Pittsburgh to see their sweet ballpark. It's a great little city with many good places to eat and drink, for cheap too. A highly recommended trip.
Aside from Pelfrey's above average (for him) pitching performance, and Chris Carter's homer, I don't really remember that much about this game. The Mets and Pirates were both so far out of it, it's a wonder this game, and series, was even scheduled this late in the season by the MLB powers that be. My emotional attachment to this particular game was zilch.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
