Mets win 5-2, Olerud hit a HR, than later in the game Mike Piazza took Clemens deep for the second time that year for a 3 run line drive HR into the LF bleachers and gave the Mets a 5-2 lead, than Armando Benitez Ked Chilli Davis on a 3-2 pitch in the 9th the end the game.

The Mets won another game against the Yankees. Olerud knocked a homer but, more importantly, in a 2-2 game, Piazza took Clemens deep AGAIN, this time a 3-run homer and I loved that homer. Clemens pitched the ball and Piazza smacked it into left-center and made this kind of growl and leaned back because he knew it was gone. Then the then-reliable Armando Benitez came in and got Chili Davis swinging to end it.

This is the only time I've ever seen Mets vs Yankees in person at Shea. I will NEVER go to that hellhole in the Bronx to see Mets vs Yankees. What I remember about the game was three things: Leiter's dependable pitching, Piazza's HR off of Rotten Roger Clemens and the pre-game happenings with ex-Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy throwing out the 1st pitch and Fugees member Wyclef Jean playing the National Anthem with some lady (can't remember her name) singing. When those two started singing the many Yankee fans in the stands at Shea were NOT happy at all. In fact, many of those "great" Yankee fans made their opinions felt in hateful racial slurs that would make Rosa Parks spin in her grave. For that moment, I felt I was in 1933 Germany, 1955 Mississippi or 1993 Ruby Ridge, Idaho. (Take your pick.) I was surprised that I didn't see the Yankee fans get together in unison and start doing Heil Hitler salutes. I said to my friend that night that thank God I'm a Mets fan and after wishing that horrible display of Mark Furhman like bigotry I wish the Mets had gotten hold of Glenn Close.

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.
