On August 9, 2006 — Mike Piazza belts two home runs off Mets ace Pedro Martinez and nearly hits a third one in the eighth inning during a 4-3 Padres loss in New York. The Big Apple fans give their former hometown hero an uncommon road curtain call after the round tripper, but aren’t so kind the second time the backstop goes deep as he is greeted with boos and catcalls.
