METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 8, 1970 GAME:
January 16, 2002
My first Met game! My Dad and Mom got me tickets for my birthday. We sat in the loge section on the first base side.
I remember bobby bonds hitting an inside-the-park homer, and Willie Mays hitting 1 or 2 HRs.
Other tidbits: There was an anti-war protest in the first inning near where Gentry was pitching. The two protesters were removed from the field pretty quickly. Also, the Knicks won the NBA championship that night, which got a big hand when it was flashed on the scoreboard.

Bobby Bonds had an inside-the-park homer leading off the eighth inning off Don Cardwell. Willie Mays hit two outside-the-park homers off starter Gary Gentry, who suffered his first loss of the 1970 season.
Giants RHP Miguel Puente picked up the first--and only--win of his major league career. It was also his first--and only--complete game. Puente lost his shutout on an eighth inning homer by Ken Boswell. Puente finished his career with a record of 1-3 and an ERA of 8.20 in 18.2 innings.

Biggest highlight of this game was when the scoreboard flashed that NY Knicks had defeated the LA Lakers for NBA Championship.
