May 22, 2004
The Pirates (45-31) split a doubleheader with the New York Mets at Shea Stadium. The Mets nearly overcame a seven-run deficit but lost the first game, 8-7. The Pirates blew a three-run lead in the second to lose 9-8. Roberto Clemente went 2 for 4 and scored a run in the first game, and doubled in three at-bats in the second. He extended his hitting streak to 14 games.
Willie Stargell hit two home runs in the second game to give him 18 for the season. The Pirates hit 12 homers in the four-game series.
Chuck Hiller started inn LF in the first game and looked like Colonel Klink as he chased a Pirate drive into the corner, right near our seats in this hot 101 degree summer heat at Shea!
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
