Viagra ingredients

Viagra ingredients After a day of trudging through the snow, viagra ingredients slush and ice of the sidewalks of Lower Manhattan, viagra ingredients little did I know what a wonderful reward was waiting for me when I got home, viagra ingredients SNY was showing the 1975 Mets Yearbook and a name from the past that only Mets fans of a certain era would know, viagra ingredients Randy Tate was the star of the show.

Viagra ingredients What you don’t remember or never heard of Randy Tate? Don’t worry you’re not alone. Viagra ingredients I vaguely remember Tate and for good reason, viagra ingredients he not only had just one season in Flushing but that one year been the extend of his big league career.

Viagra ingredients On the night of August 4, viagra ingredients 1975, viagra ingredients Randall Lee Tate of Florence Alabama came close to becoming the first Mets pitcher to hurl a no hitter. Viagra ingredients As we all know, viagra ingredients the Mets have not had a pitcher throw a no hitter in their history, viagra ingredients but Randy Tate joins the ranks of those who came close, viagra ingredients as Tate held the Montreal Expos hitless for  7 innings and the Mets held a 3-0 lead. Viagra ingredients Tate was dominating through 7 as he K’d 10 and walked 4 which for Tate was a great ratio as his season tally of BB/K was 86/99 in 137.2 IP. Viagra ingredients Tate came into the game with a 4-9 record after his last start against the Cardinals that lasted just 1.2 innings and got his tits lit for 5 runs on 5 hits and 5 walks. Viagra ingredients Tate was a back end of the rotation guy, viagra ingredients along with Hank Webb. Viagra ingredients The front end of the staff by the way was 22 game winner Tom Seaver along with Jerry Koosman and Jonathan Trumpbour Matlack.

Viagra ingredients The Mets scored all of their runs in the 5th inning of this game as Jerry Grote singled and went to second base on a wild pitch by Expos starter Dan Warthen (Yes, viagra ingredients our own pitching coach Old School Dan Warthen) The 8 hole batter, viagra ingredients Jack Heidemann (what a head of hair Heidemann had back then) walked. Viagra ingredients Randy Tate then tried to lay down a sac bunt but he bunted right at Old School Warthen who wheeled and threw to Larry Parrish at third to force out Grote. Viagra ingredients Gene Clines the Mets centerfielder and lead off man stepped up and hit a triple down the right field line that scored Heidemann and Tate. Viagra ingredients Second baseman Felix Milan hit a ball down to first base that Mike Jorgensen misplayed and Milan was safe and Clines scored the third run of the inning and the game. Viagra ingredients Jesus Alou flied out to left field and the inning was over.

Viagra ingredients Tate was strong through six but in the seventh inning he started to show signs of fatigue. Viagra ingredients He walked rookie catcher Gary Carter and Parrish but was helped out by two force plays and a key strikeout of 2B Pete Mackanin .

Viagra ingredients Now remember, viagra ingredients the manager of the Mets at this time was one Lawrence Peter Berra, viagra ingredients who was hanging on to his job by a bare thread. Viagra ingredients Berra was not very popular in the clubhouse especially by his pitchers as he had never lived down not going with a rested George Stone in Game 6 of the 1973 World Series with the Mets up 3game to 2 over the A’s but making a bad move by going with Tom Seaver on 3 days rest and then going with Jon Matlack on 3 days rest when he could have had both his pitchers on 4 days rest in case of a game 7.

Viagra ingredients The Mets go down in order in the bottom of the 7th with Tate making the last out. Viagra ingredients On to the top of the 8th.

Viagra ingredients Expos manager, viagra ingredients Gene Mauch goes right to his bench as he sends up Jose Morales to hit for Pepe Frias. Viagra ingredients Tate K’s Morales. Viagra ingredients Jim Lyttle now comes up to bat for pitcher, viagra ingredients the pride of Glen Cove LI, viagra ingredients Don DeMola. Viagra ingredients You’d have to figure that Tate was getting a bit weary on the mound. Viagra ingredients I don’t know what the weather was that night but August nights in NYC are usually warm and humid and Tate had thrown just an average of 4.2 IP in his last five starts but Tate was just 5 outs away from becoming the first Mets pitcher to toss a no hitter, viagra ingredients but first he would have to get Lyttle out.

Viagra ingredients There weren’t many people at Shea that night as the paid attendance of 10, viagra ingredients 720 shows but you can bet they were making as much noise as if the place were packed. Viagra ingredients That was one thing about Shea when the die hards hung around they were a noisy bunch. Viagra ingredients I can imagine the clapping and cheering as Lyttle stepped into the batters box to face Tate.

Viagra ingredients All the clapping and cheering turn to moans and groans on one pitch that Lyttle connected with to singled to left field to break up the no-hitter and spoil the greatest day Randy Tate ever had as a major league pitcher. Viagra ingredients Now that the no hitter was by the boards, viagra ingredients it was time to concentrate on winning the game.

Viagra ingredients You’d have to think that Yogi Berra would have his bullpen up and have a fresh arm ready to close out the last five outs and preserve the win. Viagra ingredients Well, viagra ingredients Tate stayed in the game and then walked the next batter Pepe Mangual to bring the tying run to the plate and still no movement from the manager. Viagra ingredients Tate then gave Berra a false sense of security by striking out Jim Dwyer, viagra ingredients so with two out and one on up stepped Gary Carter, viagra ingredients rookie Gary Carter. Viagra ingredients Again no change in pitcher and Tate is now up into the high 120’s in his pitch count as he gives up a single to Carter that plates Lyttle to make it 3-1 Mets. Viagra ingredients So the no-no and the shutout are gone and the go ahead run in former Met Mike Jorgensen is strolling to home plate. Viagra ingredients Still no pitching change by Yogi Berra.

Viagra ingredients I would love to know what was being said in the Mets dugout as this was playing out on the field. Viagra ingredients Rube Walker was still on staff as pitching coach and of course Tom Seaver was there as well. Viagra ingredients I can’t believe that Walker wasn’t looking to get his pitcher out of the game and get a new arm in the game, viagra ingredients just from reading the play by play of this game I’m breaking out in a cold sweat.

Viagra ingredients Now remember Jorgensen was shipped out by the Mets to Montreal along with Ken Singleton and Crazy Horse Foli for Rusty Staub , viagra ingredients no doubt he wanted to make his ex-team suffer and sure enough he did by hitting a 3 run home run to put the Expos ahead 4-3.

Viagra ingredients What in the world was Yogi thinking of not going to the bullpen? Tate had to be on fumes at this point in the game so it seems unless his arm fell off Tate was not coming out this game. Viagra ingredients Thankfully he got Larry Bitinger ot ground out to end this excruciatingly painful inning. Viagra ingredients Tate lost his no hitter, viagra ingredients shutout and game and maybe his career in this 8th inning. Viagra ingredients Sad.

Viagra ingredients The Mets went down without a fight in the 8th and 9th and what could you expect as their manager showed no leadership in this game.

Viagra ingredients The next day the Mets and Expos played a twi-night double header and the Expos won both games by identical 7-0 scores, viagra ingredients after the game, viagra ingredients GM Joe McDonald (on orders I’d imagine from M .Donald Grant ) fired Yogi Berra and named Roy McMillan the interim manager. Viagra ingredients For Randy Tate, viagra ingredients the change of manager came a day to late.
