This is the first game as a child that I can remember going to with my father. I was 9 years old. The Mets were not very good back then but there was starting to be a light at the end of the tunnel with Strawberry coming up and with the trade for Keith Hernandez.

Hernandez was my childhood idol and this was the first time I got to see him live.

The Mets won the first game in 12 innings after trailing 6-2 going into the bottom of the 8th where they scored 4 runs. Both Hernandez and George Foster homered in the game.

The Mets also won the second game in 12 innings but this time the final was 1-0. This was a scheduled doubleheader, which would never happen today, that seemed to last forever. One of my fondest childhood memories. Little did I know then that 3 years later in October I would be at Game 6. That is probably THE fondest of my childhood memories.

Being a Pirate fan, going to a doubleheader was a great idea. So I thought. First game all I remember was the 1st inning the Pirates first three guys get on then Jason Thompson blasts a slam into the upper deck. Mets come back to win in extra innings. Second game flew by. Jose Deleon pitched a no hitter for 8 2/3 but it was 0-0. Then in 12th Mookie Wilson scores from 2nd on a ground out. 1-0. What a day!

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.
