METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 28, 1987 GAME:Bob P
February 4, 2004
This game was a true indicator of how this frustrating season would go.
The Mets had a 4-0 lead going to the bottom of the eighth at the Vet and Ron Darling had not allowed a hit through seven innings. But Greg Gross led off with a triple followed by a single by Juan Samuel, and by the time the Phillies were retired it was 4-3 Mets and Darling was out of the game.
In the ninth with one out, Roger McDowell gave up three straight singles to tie the game and then with two outs, Mike Schmidt singled in the winning run and the Mets lost 5-4.
The loss dropped the Mets to 39-34 and they trailed the first place Cardinals by 6.5 games.
