METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE OCTOBER 12, 1986 GAME:
August 20, 2006
I was lucky enough to be at Game 3, which was delirious, and then this one a few nights later, which stunk. Cold night, and Scott absoultely dominated us. Not even a hint of a rally. I recall my brother and I (we were 12 and 14) going home and poking holes in one of Mike Scott's baseball cards with a thumb tack after the game.

Only thing I remember about this game is that on top of the 2nd, Alan Ashby flied to foul territoty to the third base side, which would have been an out, if there had been no extra seats created specially for the playoffs, so no play. Saved from fouled out with a runner on, Ashby promptly hit a two-run homer in the same at-bat. The Mets promptly drop the game by two, and after the game I grew worried about the momentum of the Series, how a little thing like this can sway it. On well, little did I know about its outcome, 4 days later...
