The New York Mets avoid a sweep by beating the Detroit Tigers

The New York Mets defeated the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon.  The game took place at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan and the final score was 3-1.  Jacob deGrom started for the Mets and he pitched well as did the bullpen.  The Mets offense had homeruns from Michael Conforto and Neil Walker and that was enough. 

deGrom pitched 6 2/3 innings giving up seven hits and a run with two walks and three strikeouts.  Jerry Blevins pitched to a batter and gave up a hit, Addison Reed pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up two hits and a walk with a strikeout and Jeurys Familia pitched an inning giving up a hit and he struck out the side. 

Anibel Sanchez pitched eight innings giving up four hits and a run with no walks and ten strikeouts.  Francisco Rodriguez took his second loss of the season pitching 1/3 of an inning giving up a hit and two runs and Bruce Rondon pitched 2/3 of an inning. 

Curtis Granderson had a hit, Walker had a hit and two RBI and James Loney had a hit.  Conforto had a hit and an RBI, Kelly Johnson had a hit and Conforto and Walker each hit a homerun.  Johnson and deGrom each committed an error and Granderson had an outfield assist.  The Mets left three men on base. 

Tyler Collins had a hit, Ian Kinsler had two hits and an RBI and Jose Iglesias had a hit.  Victor Martinez had two hits, J.D. Martinez had two hits and Justin Upton had a hit and drew two walks.  Casey McGehee had a hit, James McCann drew a walk and Andrew Romine had a hit.  J.D. Martinez hit a double and the Tigers were 3-8 with runners in scoring position and left ten men on base. 

Conforto hit a solo homerun in the seventh and Kinsler hit an RBI single in the seventh so the game was tied at one.  In the ninth Walker hit a two run homerun to give the Mets a 3-1 lead and that would be the final score. 

The Mets lost two out of three but salvaged the final game.  They will have the day off on Monday and return home on Tuesday to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks.
