Remember games like this in 98 and 99, and even into 2000, when Rick Reed would absolutely pitch his heart out and end up on the short end of the stick?

This shaped up like one of those games. Scoreless in the 8th, Lopez made an error which allowed the Dodgers to take a 1-0 lead.

LA brought in closer Jeff Shaw to pitch the 9th. It was Hispanic night or Asian night, I forget which, but the stadium was absolutely packed for this one.

With 1 out, Matt Franco pinch hit for Ordonez and absolutely blasted one high and deep and into the RF bullpen to tie the game 1-1. Everyone went totally nuts.

Hundley pinch-hit for Reed and walked and was sacrificed to 2nd. Alfonzo ripped a 2B deep into the gap in left center, Hundley scored and the crowd was damn near ready to rush the field.

And, guess who the winning pitcher was...

RICK REED!

Great game, great win. One of the best games I've ever been to.

I grew up in South Florida, and this summer, this was the only game I was able to get to at Shea when we were visiting family in NY. Usually I had gotten to two or three games, but this was my one in '98. And what a game to be at. Mets2Moon describes it perfectly, and I just remember going crazy. It was also nice because I still remember feeling bad for Hundley at the time, with all the Piazza stuff, and it was cool to have him involved in the win. Great game. Fun game. Shea was packed--awesome memory.

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.
