METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JUNE 12, 1990 GAME:Michael Wilson
February 10, 2001
This was the game where Dave Magadan had a bid day and took over the starting 1B job from Mike Marshall. Greg Maddux started for the Cubs and the next edition of Sports Illustrated had a Gatorade ad with Maddux sitting in the Cubs dugout drinking Gatorade and the caption read "If only the Mets went down so easy." I still have the ad.

One of the many Met games over the years that were slugfests in Wrigley including some the Mets won and some they lost. This one is not remembered as much as the 19-1 game in 1964 or the 23-10 game in 1987 but it certainly had its moments. The Mets scored in seven of the nine innings, something I believe they have only done one or two other times (e.g. the 23-10 game).

I remember working as an intern at CNBC in Fort Lee New Jersey when this game was played. They had a set of televisions above the studio where I was a stage manager/camera operator, and I can recall that every time I looked up to track the Mets' progress it seemed Dave Magadan was on base. And I looked up so often it really got the director ticked off so he pulled me from the floor. I do not work in TV today.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
