METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 3, 1983 GAME:
September 27, 2001
My first Met game ever! I was 9 years old. I believe Tom Seaver and Eric Show started this game, and Seaver pitched 10 innings. (I am not certain of this, but I believe he pitched 10). Great game!!

Seaver started this game against Tim Lollar, and Seaver left the game with a 3-2 lead in the top of the 7th after giving up a single and an infield out. Jesse Orosco came in and, after another infield out, threw a wild pitch to score the tying run.
The Mets won it in the 15th on a sac fly by Brian Giles with the bases loaded and nobody out.
The Padres managed just 7 hits in 15 innings, and they had only 2 hits after the seventh inning.
Keith Hernandez had a 2-run homer for the Mets in the third inning, and Darryl Strawberry singled to drive in the first Mets run. Tom Gorman got the win, his first as a Met.
