The Mets and Tigers play to a tie

The New York Mets and Detroit Tigers tied their game today 7-7. It was a ten inning game. Jon Niese started and pitched ok. He wasn’t great and he wasn’t bad. There were no other major league pitchers that got into the game. Lucas Duda had a grand slam in the game. Duda is a guy the Mets feel will be a legitimate power hitter for a long time. Mike Nickeas had two hits and two RBI and Jordany Valdespin had a couple of hits. 
Robert Carson pitched one inning giving up one hit, Josh Stinson pitched one inning giving up four hits and three runs and Armando Rodriguez pitched an inning giving up a walk and a strikeout. Daniel Herrera pitched an inning giving up a hit and a walk, Jeremy Hefner pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run and Josh Edgin got charged with a blown save. He pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a hit and two walks with two strikeouts. Jeff Stevens pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout.

Andres Torres had a hit and an RBI, Mike Baxter had a hit and Ike Davis had a walk. Duda had the one big hit and four RBI, Josh Thole had a walk and Ronny Cedeno had a hit. Nickeas had two doubles, Valdespin had a triple and Duda hit the only homerun for the Mets. The Mets were 3-10 with runners in scoring position and they left four men on base.

The Mets will host the Cardinals on Tuesday afternoon.  Mike Pelfrey will be making his second spring start.
