These were Mets without much of an offense, Frank Tavares, Lee Mazzilli, Jose Morales, Dan Norman & Doug Flyn were all batting under .250. John Stearns & Eliot Maddox were briefly batting over .300, & Joel Youngblood was at .273, that was it, for the line up that night.
Falcone would go 7-10 with a 4.52 ERA & one save that year for the Mets. Falcone was more famous for being a cousin of long time Mets coach Joe Pignatano. Remember Piggys famous tomato plants in the bullpen? Brooklyns own- Falcone, Piggy, Torre & Mazzilli were all on the same team.
