Nolan Ryan strikes out Danny Heep leading off the sixth inning. It is strikeout number 4,000 of Ryan's career, making Ryan the first pitcher ever to strike out 4,000 batters.

Ryan finished this game with eleven strikeouts in seven innings but got a no-decision as the Mets got two unearned runs in the top of the seventh to tie the game, 3-3. Bill Doran singled--his fifth hit of the game--off Tom Gorman in the bottom of the twelfth to drive in Dickie Thon with the game-winner as the Mets fell 3.5 games behind the Cardinals.

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!
