Willie Stargell hit a two-run homer with Roberto Clemente aboard as the Pirates (67-46) came from behind to defeat the New York Mets, 7-5, at Forbes Field. The Pirates were down 3-0 and 5-1 early in the game.

Stargell, who hit his 26th home run, had one called back in the first inning after it was determined the ball he hit off the rightfield screen landed below the home-run line.

Clemente went 2 for 4, including a double, scored twice and drove in a run.

The start went to recently acquired Ralph Terry, the loss to rookie southpaw Rob Gardner.

Both Gardner and Terry worked for both the METS and the YANKEES during their careers. The difference however, Terry was shot when he got here but Gardner (9-5) turned in a decent 1972 season in the Bronx playing for a Yankee team that had the likes of Ron Swoboda, John Callison, Hal Lanier in the mix.

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.
