METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE SEPTEMBER 1, 2001 GAME:
August 17, 2002
Appier smoked a single to drive in the 1st 2 runs of the game. Pitcher Magic!!

Yes, Appier did drive in the first 2 runs in this game, however it was Jay Payton who drove home the last run, with an 11th inning double, scoring Jorge Toca who made a most ungraceful belly flop across home plate.
This was also Benny Agbayani's last game with the Mets. He broke a bone in his hand in the early innings and was lifted in the 4th. He was out for the rest of the season and never played for the Mets again.

I remember Gary Cohen on the WFAN postgame saying at one point, his voice dripping with sarcasm, "And Cliff Floyd took his sweet time getting to the ball...," which led to a burst of laughter from me and my father. Who knew Cliff would be joining us at Shea two years later, and become a fan favorite!
