METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 3, 1987 GAME:Andy from Chicago
January 14, 2011
Darryl Strawberry, if my research is correct, won this game by hitting a titanic homer off Kent Tekulve that hit high on the NL out of town scoreboard at Shea.
I remember the home run because it was a rocket, hit with a chillingly perfect swing. Tekulve was a couple of years removed from his days as a top notch closer and the side-arming righty vs. the power hitting lefty was a bad matchup for the Phillies.
Can't find another instance where Straw homered in a post-Pirates Tekulve appearance, so this must be the place.

Andy from Chicago......I'm sorry but Keith's homer won this game in extra innings, not Strawberry's. It was Keith's only game ending homer as a Met.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
