On September 13, 1997 — The Mets, down 6 – 0 with one strike to go in the bottom of the 9th, rally to tie the Expos. Carl Everett ties the game with a grand slam. Two innings later, Bernard Gilkey hits a three-run homer to end it, 9 – 6. Facing Dustin Hermanson, the Mets manage just one hit through the first eight innings, and that is a blooper by Carlos Mendoza, his first major league hit. Two singles and two relievers later the Mets tie it. John Franco is the winner over Steve Kline.
