1993 With the team record mired at 13-25, Jeff Torborg is replaced by Dallas Green as the Mets skipper. The 1990 American League Manager of the Year with the White Sox posted an 85-115 record (.425) during his brief stint with New York.
2010 Mets center fielder Angel Pagan initiates the tenth triple play in franchise history when he snags Cristian Guzman's sinking liner with first and second base occupied. After making the stunning catch that surprises both of Washington's baserunners, the outfielder overthrows the infield, but catcher Henry Blanco takes the errant toss and throws the ball to Jose Reyes at second base to double off Livan Hernandez, and then the shortstop relays the ball to first baseman Ike Davis to triple up Nyjer Morgan, making it the first 9-2-6-3 triple killing in major league history.

2011 In the Rockies' 7-1 victory over Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park, 40 year-old Jason Giambi becomes the second-oldest player to hit three homers in a game. In 1962, Stan Musial became the oldest major leaguer to accomplish the feat when he hit a trio of round-trippers at the age of 41 facing the Mets in the Polo Grounds.
