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.

We're looking for your comments about this specific game. We've had people use this space to share their thoughts on how the current season is going, or on ways that the Mets can improve the team. Such comments, unless in the context of this particular game, will be considered off-topic and will be removed.

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
