September 25, 2003
The Mets swept the three game series at Forbes Field on July 4th weekend with this 8-7 win. They scored 28 runs in the three games.
In this one the Mets came back from a 6-1 hole after two innings. Former Pirate Donn Clendenon hit a 3-run homer with two outs in the 6th to give the Mets an 8-6 lead. Cal Koonce pitched the last four innings, giving up one run and striking out six for the save.
This gave the Mets some momentum heading into the biggest series in the franchise's history to that point: the 3-game homestand against the Cubs that featured the remarkable 9th inning comeback and Seaver's near-perfect game.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
