METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 30, 1978 GAME:

St Louis RHP Silvio Martinez made his first major league start and threw a one-hitter against the Mets. The only hit was a Steve Henderson leadoff home run in the seventh inning. The Mets got their other run on a walk, infield out, and two wild pitches. George Hendrick had a three-run homer for the Cards.

Martinez pitched two 1-hitters and two 2-hitters in 1978, but finished the year with just a 9-8 record. In 1980 he went 15-8 for the Cardinals, but was out of baseball after the 1981 season due mainly to elbow problems.

Yep, I remember this one very well. I was 13 and about to graduate from the 8th grade. My friend's father treated us by taking us out to see the Mets play the Cardinals at Shea. We had great seats, field level behind third base. Little did we know that we would nearly witness a no-hitter by a pitcher making his major league debut, which really would have been something. The very late '70s were a dark, dark time for the Mets.

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.

Thank you!
