Houston led 1-0 after one inning when Terry Remmerswaal doubled to right foeld, moved to third on a fielding erro by shortstop Scott Monroe and scored on a ground out to first Bill Garber.

Garber hit his 10th homerun in the 4th odd Jackie Moore with one out to tie the game 1-1.

Jim Lonergan put the Mets in front 2-1 with his 3rd of the season in the 5th inning with two out. It was the seventh homerun allowed by Moore this season and the 22nd allowed in two season by Moore,

Jim Otis hit a two run homerun for Houston in the 8th to put Houston in front 3-2.

The Gunslingers could not hold it long however.
