I picked this win because of the jolt it gave the team at the time.

The Mets, who had been teetering on the brink of mediocrity since their hot April, were coming off an embarrassingly miserable sweep in Washington that left them six games back, with a record of 40-37. They were mired in a stretch that had dropped them to third place and pessimism was in the air as the major league best Cubs came into town for a four game series.

It seemed the cliff-dangling would continue for most of the game until their best hitter, their young catcher, a rookie and the imported veteran got things flipped rightside up.

The Mets proceeded to sweep the Cubs that weekend and provide a much needed morale boost.
