METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 31, 1967 GAME:kevin
January 7, 2008
I remember watching this game with a great deal of anticipation. Bo Belinsky had a lousy record at the time of this start and I fully expected the Mets to light his ass up in this one. The Mets scored two runs in the first inning and I figured they would knock Belinsky out in the next inning or two. Belinsky then mowed down the Mets for eight straight innings, giving up two hits, both to Tommie Davis the only major league hitter the Mets had in the line up that day. This game taught me an important lesson about baseball and how unpredictable games can be. I still remember this particular game more than forty years after the fact because of this valuable lesson I received that July afternoon.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
