Leiter Pitches Mets to the Playoffs
Date: October 4, 1999
In a one-game playoff to determine the 1999 NL Wild Card, Al Leiter tossed a two-hit, complete-game shutout against the Cincinnati Reds on the road. With the 5-0 victory, the Mets advanced to the playoffs for the first time in 11 years. “I think I’m deaf in my left ear from where John Franco screamed,” Leiter said.
