Ed Halicki of the Giants pitched a no-hitter against the Mets in this game. I recall seeing it on TV.

I guess I wasn't aware the Halicki was throwing a no-hitter until the very last out and Halicki was celebrating wildly like he had just won the World Series.

For some reason I recall Halicki walking more people than I see in the box score. (I'm sure the box score is correct!) If I remember correctly, he was getting into some deep counts. There was a point in the game where the Mets had runners on first and second and were threatening, but obviously Halicki got out of that jam.

I recall Rusty Staub beating out a throw by the Giants secondbaseman on a slowly hit groundball that I think he bobbled momentarily. The play was subsequently scored an error. There was some question of whether it should have been scored a hit.

They showed a replay of the Rusty "hit" on the nightly news with the sportscaster (I don't remember who or what station) berating the Mets' offense in the game.

Incidently, I believe this was during Mike Vail's 23-game hitting streak. He was a pinch-hitter in the game and worked out a walk. Because he didn't make an out, the streak was kept intact.

This was the first no-hitter I ever saw. Even though it was against the Mets, I was still excited to see it. It was the second game of a doubleheader. The Mets won the first game, but they couldn't do anything against Ed Halicki, a New Jersey native.

One other thing I remember about this game was Jesus Alou pinch-hitting in the ninth. This appearance gave him and his brothers, Felipe and Matty, a combined total of 5,000 games played. A family milestone was reached, but overshadowed by something bigger.

The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
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.
