In the first J.D. Martinez hit a solo homerun to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead.  Tejada hit an RBI single in the third to tie the game.  Campbell hit an RBI groundout in the third to give the Mets a 2-1 lead.  In the sixth Muno hit an RBI single to extend the lead to 3-1 and the Tigers came right back in the bottom of the sixth.  Nick Castellanos hit an RBI single to cut the lead to 3-2 and then Bryan Holaday reached on an error and a run scored to tie the game at three.  Hernan Perez hit a sacrifice fly and it was 4-3 Tigers.  In the seventh Mayberry Jr. hit an RBI double to tie the game at four.  In the eighth the Tigers would score the last two runs of the game.  A wild pitch made it 5-4 and then another wild pitch made it 6-4 and that would be the final score. 

The Mets will take on the New York Yankees on Sunday afternoon with Matt Harvey taking the mound.  They will remain at home for that game.
