Funny. The Mets never scored more than 14 runs in a home game through the first 23 years of their existence - and then exceed that in two consecutive home dates. Amazin'.

First time the Mets ever scored over 30 runs in two consecutive games.

I was at this game along with my cousin and late brother. We were pumped because my cousin kept blasting the music of "QUEEN" on his car stereo while going to the game. (Live Aid had happened the previous weekend.) It was the highest scoring Mets game I've ever witnessed in person under blue skies and a rocking crowd.

I took my eight year-old son to the game. We were lucky enough to get Dale Murphy's autograph before the game. In appreciation, my son gave Murphy his own little league baseball card. Murphy was so nice, he said he would keep it in his back pocket during the game and HE DID! We wished him luck and said we hoped he'd hit a homer off Leach...after the Mets were up big. Sure enough in the top of the sixth, he hits one over the center field fence. A real "Babe" moment.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
