METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 11, 1996 GAME:
March 10, 2004
This was the infamous Pete Harnisch/Scott Servais/Kevin Foster brawl, where Foster threw a pitch over Hundley's head in the 1st, Harnisch hit Foster with a pitch in the 2nd, then Terry Adams threw a pitch behind Harnisch in the 5th. Harnisch then began jawing with Cubs Catcher Scott Servais, then closed-fisted him in the face, setting off a brawl that spilled into the Cubs dugout. I believe Harnisch, Adams, Servais and Hundley all got tossed.
Then, of course, after the Mets led 6-2, Henry came in and blew the lead.
Rico Brogna, in his last great moment (and there weren't that many) as a Met, hit the game winner, his 2nd of the game, in the 9th.

As mentioned by Mets2Moon, there were NINE ejections in this game, including Servais and Harnisch, who was also fined and suspended for eight games for throwing the punch. Mets bullpen coach Steve Swisher was also thrown out and suspended for two games, and John Franco was thrown out too, and today was John Franco Day at Shea!
Rico Brogna had a triple and a single to go along with his two homers.

To my knowledge.....this game is where a Mets player came the closets to hitting 3 homers in a game at Shea (it never happened).
Brogna hit 2 homers and then hit a triple that hit the VERY top of the wall.
