METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 15, 1987 GAME:Bob P
May 22, 2004
Keith Hernandez had three hits including the 2,000th of his career as the Mets roughed up 21- year-old Greg Maddux. Maddux gave up six runs, nine hits, and four walks in 5.2 innings and his record fell to 6-12.
Also on this day, the Mets acquired John Candelaria for the stretch drive in exchange for two minor leaguers, one of whom (RHP Jeff Richardson) faced two batters in the major leagues. The other, Shane Young, never made it to The Show. Candy filled the starter's slot held by Ron Darling, who had been injured in the disastrous loss to the Cardinals four nights earlier.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
