METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 11, 1988 GAME:Bob P
February 28, 2004
The Mets were down, 8-5, going to the top of the ninth at the Astrodome. Luckily, Dave Smith came on to pitch for Houston.
The Mets loaded the bases with one out, and then Tim Teufel hit a line drive that cleared the fence in left center for an apparent grand slam to put the Mets ahead. However, it struck the concrete outer wall and came back on the field. The umpires incorrectly ruled it a three-run double, which tied the game and sent it into extra innings.
The Mets wound up winning in the tenth on a single by Kevin McReynolds. Doc Gooden and Mike Scott combined to give up twelve runs in this game!
