I was watching Mets Classics the other day on SNY and they showed the
10 run bottom the eighth miraculous comeback win against the Braves on
June 30,2000 to turn a 8-1 deficit into a 11-8 win.I remember Eric Cammack
got the win and I saw him pitching the top of the eighth of this game and it's
been a while since I heard his name so I was curious about his lifetime stats.
I remember him pitching in 2000 for the Mets and I remember he wasn't on the
2000 Mets postseason roster but I was curious if he pitched in other years with the Mets and if he pitched for other major league teams as well.
So I went to baseball-reference.com and I was surprised to see that his
lifetime record was 0-0.How could that be if he got a win in this game?
So then I went to baseball-reference.com and clicked on box scores and I
saw that on June 30,2000 Armando Benitez got the win and Terry Mulholland
got the loss.The winning pitcher is incorrect as Eric Cammack got the win and
Armando Benitez got the save.Even though Cammack pitched poorly to say the least in pitching 1 inning in this game and giving up 3 runs Cammack still
should have got the win.This would be significant if you were him as Cammack's lifetime record should be 1-0 not 0-0.And no,I am not Eric Cammack's cousin.(lol).Well,at least baseball-reference.com acknowledged
that Cammack with the bat was 1 for 1 lifetime with a triple and a rbi.
And SNY showed the final linescore on the screen after they showed the
game as they correctly noted that Cammack got the win,Mulholland got
the loss,and Benitez got the save.Tom Seaver and Gary Thorne called that
game.So if baseball-reference.com becomes aware of my request I hope they
would rightfully change it so that it shows Eric Cammack's lifetime record is
1-0 not 0-0.Eric,I'm looking out for you,buddy.(lol).I got your back.(lol).

at least a tie."(lol)
