Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 81 - Mets at Tigers


New York Mets (41-39) at Detroit Tigers (43-38), 1:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: New York - Mike Pelfrey (4-6, 4.78) Detroit - Justin Verlander (10-3, 2.38)

In the first sellout since the home opener at Comerica Park last Saturday versus Arizona, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander struck out a career-high 14 batters en route to his 10th win of the season.

Verlander will try to become the majors' first 11-game winner today in the finale of a three-game series versus the New York Mets in Motown. New York Yankees lefty CC Sabathia is also going for his 11th win several miles east this afternoon versus the Milwaukee Brewers.

The right-hander hopes to make quick work of the Mets and is a sizzling 8-0 with a 1.56 earned run average in his last 10 starts. The Tigers are 9-1 in that time and watched their ace tear through the Diamondbacks in last weekend's 6-0 home victory. He allowed one walk and scattered four hits, improving to 10-3 with a 2.38 ERA in 17 starts. He has won his last six starts and hasn't suffered defeat since April 27 in a 10-1 loss versus Seattle.

"I feel like I'm throwing the ball really well," Verlander said on the club's site after his last win. "I feel like my fastball control has been outstanding, for the most part, during this stretch. Most of the good games I have are built off of that, being able to locate that, and mixing the offspeed off of that."

Verlander is 6-2 in 10 home starts and lost his only appearance to the Mets last June 22, when he gave up five runs in two innings of a 14-6 disaster.

Happy Recap : Game 80 - Mets at Tigers - Mets Outdo Themselves Scoring 16 Runs, 20 Hits


Final Score: NY Mets 16, Detroit 9 

Daniel Murphy and Angel Pagan each drove in four runs as the Mets staved off several comeback bids from the Detroit Tigers and claimed a 16-9 win in the middle test of a three-game inter-league set.

Pagan finished 4-for-6 and scored three times for the red-hot Mets, who have tallied 52 runs in the last four games -- all wins. Scott Hairston knocked in three runs while Ronny Paulino had four hits and touched home four times for the victors.

"We're swinging the bats well. It's nice to play well, so hopefully we can keep it going," Murphy said.

Starter Chris Capuano (7-7) reaped the benefits of the offensive game, which was a season-high in runs and hits (20) to get the win. He allowed five runs on six hits over five-plus innings.

The Tigers clobbered five home runs to keep the game interesting but still suffered their third loss in seven games. That included a 14-3 pounding on Tuesday. Miguel Cabrera had two of the Wednesday homers that brought in four runs.

Detroit starter Phil Coke (1-8) continued his struggles and was roughed up for eight runs -- seven earned -- on 10 hits in four-plus innings. Then again, none of the Tigers pitchers had much success as manager Jim Leyland used position player Don Kelly to get the final out in the top of the ninth.

"The way we were hitting the ball out tonight I really thought we were going to win," Leyland said.

The Mets picked up where they left off in the opener of the series.

New York Mets (40-39) at Detroit Tigers (43-37), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Mets - Chris Capuano (6-7, 3.99) Detroit - Phil Coke (1-7, 4.32)

The New York Mets exploded offensively on Tuesday to move above .500 for the first time since the first week of the season. Tonight, they shoot for a series win when they play the middle test of their three-game inter-league set against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

Jason Bay and Carlos Beltran each cleared the bases in the fourth and fifth inning, respectively, to break a 299-game drought without a grand slam, as the Mets rolled to a commanding 14-3 win.

The large offensive output saw a season-high in hits (18) that included Jose Reyes' 4-for-4 showing at the plate. The victory also put the Mets over the .500 mark (40-39) since the team was 3-2.

"We're not one of those bopping teams," Bay admitted. "We're more of a string two or three hits together instead of a bloop and a blast. It was nice to show that we can still hit the ball out of the ballpark."

The offense overshadowed a solid start by R.A. Dickey (4-7), who allowed three runs on 10 hits and struck out six over seven innings.

For a team that hadn't hit a grand slam since 2009, the New York Mets sure made it look simple with two in as many innings.

Jason Bay and Carlos Beltran each cleared the bases in the fourth and fifth inning, respectively, to break a 299-game drought without a grand slam, as the Mets took commanding 14-3 win over the Detroit Tigers to open a three-game interleague set.

The large offensive output saw a season-high in hits (18) that included Jose Reyes' 4-for-4 showing at the plate. The victory also put the Mets over the .500 mark (40-39) for the first time since the opening week of the season.

The offense overshadowed a solid start by R.A. Dickey (4-7), who allowed three runs on 10 hits and struck out six over seven innings.

Austin Jackson had a two-run homer and Andy Dirks added a solo shot for Detroit, which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Tigers starter Rick Porcello (6-6) continued his recent struggles, yielding seven runs on 11 hits in just 3 2/3 innings. Over his last three starts, he has given up 21 runs in 11 1/3 frames.

All sign's have pointed up recently for R.A. Dickey as he was masterful last time out. But the case stands where the numbers don't lie. The Tigers hitters are batting a career .293 (22 for 75) off  Dickey (Remember he pitched in Texas, Seattle and Minny before the Mets).   They also have combined for 3 HR's and 7 RBI's in the past.

Let's just hope the past does not become the present and he can come away with the win.  Let's Go Mets - Get Over the Hump (.500)

Preview: 2011 Regular Season Game 79 - Mets at Tigers


New York Mets (39-39) at Detroit Tigers (43-36), 7:05 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: NY Mets - R.A. Dickey (3-7, 3.76) Detroit - Rick Porcello (6-5, 4.50)

The New York Mets try to go above .500 for the first time since the first week of the season this evening when they open a three-game inter-league set against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

The Mets pulled to the break-even mark over the weekend by taking two of three from the defending American League champion Texas Rangers. New York managed a series win on Sunday, as Jose Reyes went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and another driven in, sparking the Mets to an 8-5 victory.

Daniel Murphy added three hits, two runs scored and an RBI for New York, which has won four of five.

Dillon Gee (8-1), coming off his first loss of the season, got back in the win column with a quality six-inning start of three runs allowed on eight hits.

"It was nice to come in and just battle," Gee said. "Not good stuff today, but after the first inning, especially when they got me the lead back, my main goal was to keep them there, keep us in the game. I was just fortunate to be able to do that."
