Here's what I remember from this game.....I got free tickets and sat in the loge box section between home and first. Best seats I had to that date. Ron Hunt led off with a near home-run that just curved foul at the left field pole. He worked out an infield hit to second base. Woody Fryman proceeded to retire the next 27 batters. To top things off Jose Pagan hit a grand slam. Probably his only one. Woirst game I ever attended.

Friday night, school's been out just a few days, oh, to be young, free and a Mets fan in 1966!

The big bad Pirates are in town. I remember Don Sutton saying of these sluggers, "Some hitters wait for a fastball, others look for a curve, these guys just look for a baseball."

Alley, STARGELL, CLEMENTE, Clendenon, Alou, Mota were all hitting over .300 and Woody Fryman (no relation to Travis) took the hill.

The rookie lefthander surrended a lead off base hit to Ron Hunt. If I REMEMBER correctly, Hunt was picked off or erased on a double play ball. The next 27 METS were retired. In effect, Fryman, who went 12-9 that year tossed a perfect game. The Mets dropped a 12-0 game.

A few more details about this pitching gem.

Pitcher Woody Fryman threw a one-hitter as the Pirates clobbered the New York Mets, 12-0, at Shea Stadium. It was the sixth consecutive victory for the Pirates (44-29).

Fryman gave up a single to the Mets' leadoff hitter, Ron Hunt, and was perfect after that. Fryman struck out eight and raised his record to 6-3.

Roberto Clemente went 1 for 5 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. Willie Stargell hit his 16th home run of the season.

Fryman only faced 27 batters - 26 after Hunt was out stealing. I do not remember whether the steal attempt occurred because Hunt was picked off.

I stand corrected. Jose Pagan did not hit a grand slam, rather he hit a 2 run homer --- 1 of the 4 dingers he hit that year.

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.
