Eleven years later, on April 19, 1996, while managing the Orioles, Baltimore trailed the Texas Rangers 10-7 after having failed to score in the top of the 8th. In the bottom of the eighth, Texas scored 16 times to win 26-7.

Probably the only two 26-7 games ever played, and Johnson managed and lost them both! What are the odds?

I was at that Phillies/Mets game ..........

Von Hayes hit 2 HRs in first (including a grand slam).

I was with my friend, who was a live and die Mets fan. In about the 5th inning he wanted to leave, he was so disgusted.

I said no way. First, it was going to be some sort of record setting run total, that I wanted to see. Secondly, I was on a beer per inning streak .......

Fun memory, Scott
