By far the best Met-Yankee game in the history of these teams playing each other. Yanks bombed away with 6 HR's: 2 by Posada, 2 by O'Neill. Knoblauch hit one and someone else for them. The big blow of the game came to Mike Piazza, with the Mets down 6-4 Mike Piazza hit a 3-run, 482-foot HR off Ramiro Mendoza to give the Mets the lead, but Posada hit his 2nd of the game to make it 8-7 Yanks. Then Matt Franco, "Now Rivera brings the hands together, the 0-2 to Franco, and a line drive base hit into right field, Henderson scores, here comes Alfonzo... here comes O'Neill's throw to the plate... he slides, the Mets win the ball game."

The greatest Met-Yankee game up to this point (Game 1 of the World Series may have been ever better). I had to go shopping for stuff on this day and I taped it so, that night, I popped in the tape. The Yankees hit 6 home runs 2 by Posada, 2 by O'Neill, one by Ledee, and one by someone else. However, the Mets were down 6-4 when Mike Piazza stepped up and it hit one of the longest home runs I've ever seen hit at Shea, a 3- run, 482 foot bomb off Ramiro Mendoza that gave the Mets a 7-6 lead. That was a great homer to watch because, when Piazza hit the ball, he just flung the bat forward and trotted towards first because he knew it was gone and it landed in the picnic area and then Matt Franco steps up while the Yankees have an 8-7 lead and lines one into right, Henderson scores, a great throw by Paul O'Neill to try to nail Alfonzo but Alfonzo makes an incredible slide and is safe and the Mets win!

I went to this game with my brother in law who is a die hard Yankee fan. The thing I remember most about this game aside from Alfonzo's 2B in the 9th, Franco's game winning hit, Alfonzo sliding home with the winning run, Piazza's mammoth bomb, was the tension in the stands as both teams were fighting this one out back and forth. I can't ever recall being so tense in the stands hearing all the Yankee BS and hoping the Mets could hang on and win. I recall that Matt Franco took a really, really close pitch with 2 strikes right before his game winning hit in the 9th. Man this was one hell of a game. After the game I dragged my brother in law to JFK airport to watch the British Airways Concorde land on runway 22L.

My favorite Subway Series game to date for so many reasons.

I still think that ball Piazza hit off Mendoza is in orbit.

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.
