On September 15, 1997 — The Mets, 1 – 0 winners yesterday on a home run by diminutive Luis Lopez, use the long ball today to tie the Phils. New York collects four home runs in the 7th and 8th to tie at 6 apiece, then stitch six straight singles in the 10th to score 5 and win, 10 – 5. In the nitecap, the Mets lose, 2 – 1 to Darrin Winston, a 31-year-old rookie released by the Mets in the spring.
