This was the first playoff game I went to. Sat in the Mez, section 15 right on the first base bag. The crowd went absolutely nuts when Beltran hit his homer. Later that night Albert Pujols, who went 0-3 and got doubled off first on a lazy fly ball to center, claimed Tom Glavine was not very good and it wasn't fair he was hitting the ball hard and making outs.

I attended this game, and much like every other Playoff game I have attended at Shea, this one just seemed larger than life. But this one was different. This was the first time I had attended a Playoff game at night. There is a certain kind of atmosphere at these games that just permeates the night. I'd been to games in 1988, 1999, 2000 and even Game 1 of the NLDS this year, but this game just seemed off the charts, from the second I got off the 7 train to the moment I pulled off into the night after the end of the game.

Standing in the Upper Deck, waiting through the interminable dead time for network TV, hearing the extra-loud sound system absolutely blasting Van Halen's "Right Now" before the game started, looking around and drinking it all in.

That's why I keep coming back.

Such a taut, tense battle the whole way. It's never easy in the Playoffs. I don't know what Pujols saw, but Glavine looked pretty damn good from where I was watching. He had his best stuff and it showed.

The Mets defense was definitely up to snuff as well. From Chavez's diving catch in the 5th, to Beltran's catch and throw to double off Pujols in the 4th, to Wright's 2 great stabs of line drives in the 3rd, and Valentin's glovework up the middle in the 9th.

And, of course, Beltran's show-stopping HR off the scoreboard in the 6th producing the only runs of the game.

And Wagner closing it out, and the Mets jumping out on the right foot in the NLCS.

Such an unforgettable night.

I only wish it wasn't my last trip to Shea for 2006...

An excellent pitching duel between Glavine and Weaver. Old time baseball like it ought to be.

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.
