Listened to this game on the radio, it was an early, steamy summer night in NY and my sophomore year in high school was ending. Vaguely remember Roach giving up a grand slam, but I really didn't care. The season was already lost and the summer was starting to kick into high gear.

I'll remember that Jose Reyes hit a grand slam to left field, and you could feel the magic of the player.

What an amazing win for the Mets in this game, with the key shot being Marlon Anderson's game- tying inside-the-park home run in the ninth. According to espn.com's Jayson Stark, that was the first time a pinch-hit inside-the-park home run tied a game in the bottom of the ninth inning since June 10, 1925!!!

Definitely one of the more remarkable games I've ever seen. Good pitching duel all night, with Anaheim's great bullpen inheriting a 2-1 lead.

In the bottom of the ninth, Marlon Anderson took a ball from the generally unhittable Francisco Rodriguez, and hit it to around the warning track in right center. The RF Guerrero and CF Finley were both chasing it. Finley attempted a sliding catch and missed the ball, but it caromed off his leg and bounced into the right field corner. Meanwhile, with his momentum the other way, Guerrero had no shot to chase it down. By the time Finley caught up to the ball, he had no play at home, as Anderson scooted all the way around for an inside-the-park home run (his first HR of the season).

Then in the tenth, after an error by gold glover Mientkiewicz led to an Angel run scoring, the Mets got two runners on base with none out. However, Beltran and Piazza both struck out, putting the game in Cliff Floyd's hands. He quickly worked a full count and began fouling off pitches. The seventh pitch of the at-bat was a towering fly to the second deck of Shea, just a few feet on the wrong side of the right field foul pole. After two more fouls though, Floyd lined a shot off the scoreboard for a walk-off winner. Great dramatic ending, arguably the best moment in the last few years for the Mets.

Marlon Anderson is a beast! He hit an inside-the-park homer in the ninth to tie the game and then Floyd hit a walk-off bomb to end it. I wish things could always be this good

I had an interesting view of this game - from the 3rd or 4th tier in right field, just to the foul side of the foul pole. When Marlon Anderson hit his game-tying inside-the-park- home run, all I saw was Anderson sprinting around the bases and no throw coming in from right field. I never saw the ball bounce off Finley's leg. Also, when Floyd hit his long foul bomb before his eventual walk-off homer later in that at-bat in the 10th inning, our section was one of the few sections who knew it was foul as it left the bat, while the rest of the stadium exploded, only to be dissapointed seconds later. Of course, Cliff hit one out anyway. One other thing to remember - Jose Reyes' steal of 3rd base as Brandon Donnelly stared at the ground with the ball in his hand right before that fateful pitch to Floyd in the 10th. Maybe it had some sort of impact on the pitch, who knows. Best game all year, I was privledged to be there.

I was lucky enough to be at this amazing game, a game I will never forget.

Three things happened that day that I have never seen live before at a Mets game:

  • A Met robbing someone of a home run: Carlos Beltran pulling Molina's drive in from over the center field wall.
  • A Met (or anyone) hitting an inside-the-park home run: Marlon Anderson's game tying sprint.
  • A Met walk-off home run: Cliff Floyd's game winner after a long, dramatic at bat.
It was a classic.

What a great game. Headed into the city and got some sausages in midtown. It rained like crazy, had a little bit of a delay. after that the game was pretty much blah until the later innings. That Marlon inside-the-park home run was insane. Then the Cliffy hit, when he hit the ball and it went foul. I really thought he would strike out right after that, but then he rocketed that ball over the wall and we won!

I remember watching this game on Ch. 11 and it was a very rocking comeback. SNY replayed this game on Christmas Day 2008 as a wonderful relief from the Yule Log etc. Dave O'Brien and Tom Seaver were the announcing team for this one as K-Rod was the one who gave up Marlon Anderson's inside the park home run. Then Cliff Floyd hits a mammoth walkoff HR!

If anyone can find me video feed of the two home runs, I'll be forever grateful!!

Was there a triple play in this game? Or has my memory embellished the best regular season game I ever attended?

The last Mets game I went to at Shea before moving away. I went with my son and we saw a great win, with a walk-off home run by Cliff Floyd.

The first-ever game I went to, with my dad, back in 1966, the Mets beat the Giants on a walk-off home run by Ron Swoboda.

Nice book ends!

If I recall correctly there was a long rain delay to start this game. We waited it out, and the ending (especially Anderson's inside-the- park home run in the 9th to send it to extra innings) was well worth the wait.

As a Father's Day gift to my dad, I had my oldest son (8 at the time) ask him (my dad) to take him (my son) to his first Mets game, just as my Dad had taken ME to MY first Mets game exactly 25 years earlier when I was 9. Then the 3 of us went to one of the most unbelievable games I ever saw at Shea - Marlon Anderson's inside-the-parker to tie it in the bottom of the ninth was crazy enough, but then Cliff Floyd's epic at-bat capped off by a 3-run walk-off blast after we had fallen behind in the tenth just sent us all into an absolute frenzy - - wonderful baseball/family memory.

Once again, I schlepped out to the West Coast to see my beloved Amazin's. As we all know, Willie's head was on the chopping block for some time. I was joking with others, who would make it out to Anaheim first, me or Willie? Well, I did as I flew out the previous day, and Willie did later that night.

I sat behind the Mets dugout (first base side) with a couple other Mets fans who schlepped out there too as well as a bunch of transplants. I was directly behind Willie (well, about 20 rows behind him) and I saw him come out to make pitching changes and congratulate the team after they won.

Afterwards, my cousin and I had dinner at the only all-night diner in San Bernadino County. (You can count on one hand the number of all night diners in So. California.) Well afterwards we hear about Willie. "Huh? They fired him? They won. Now they have to fly him back home cross- country after they just flew him out for one game."

As you know, they also fired pitching coach Rick Peterson and 1st base coach Tom Nieto, so the next day there was practically a new coaching staff.

Had it not been for Tiger Woods winning the US 0pen in overtime and on a bum leg to a Cinderella story, this would've been the biggest sports story of the day.

My first Mets game at Citi in 2 months and it was a great game. Pelfrey goes the distance; Beltran hits a great HR; got to see yet another AL team in the Angels; Glenn Close sang the National Anthem and messed up a little towards the end but recovered (unlike Christine Aguilera at the Super Bowl). I wore my Gary Carter t-shirt and got emotional when they showed the video of The Kid in the 7th inning. An almost perfect night except for the Brooklyn Burger for which I got one word for it: "MEH".

We have seen Neise pitch a great weekend game at Citi Field in 2010 but not on this Fathers Day afternoon. He just did not have it.
