METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE AUGUST 15, 1989 GAME:Hank M
May 31, 2006
I was at this game watching from the field level seats just to the left of home plate. Howard Johnson homered into the Mets' bullpen for their only run until the ninth, when two guys named Kevin came through in the clutch.
With one out, Kevin McReynolds hit one into the Padres' bullpen in left to tie the game. Later in the inning, with Barry Lyons on first, Kevin Elster came up. He hit one into the left field corner. Lyons (who was not a "speed demon") came around third and headed home. Bip Roberts' relay throw came up short, bouncing off catcher Benito Santiago. Barry was safe and the Mets had a 3-2 win. What an ending!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
