Recap: Game 128 - Tigers (11) at Mets (3) - d'Arnaud hits his first HR, still get swept by powerful Tigers

Detroit (77-53)«20000200711180
N.Y. Mets (58-70)001200000340

W: R. Porcello (10-7) L: D. Gee (9-9)
HR: DET - M. Cabrera (42),A. Dirks (8)   NYM - T. d´Arnaud (1)


Miguel Cabrera and Andy Dirks each had two-run home runs and the Detroit Tigers swept a three-game series against the New York Mets with an 11-3 victory on Sunday.

Dirks drove in three runs for the Tigers, who took three straight from the Mets for the first time since June 20-23, 1997. Victor Martinez, Ramon Santiago, Omar Infante, Matt Tuiasosopo and Austin Jackson each had an RBI apiece in the victory.

Rick Porcello (10-7) gave up three runs on four hits and three walks over seven innings.

"It was nice to come in here, get a win and complete a sweep," said Porcello. "And I guess it made it a little bit sweeter that it was a team that I watched growing up.

Travis d'Arnaud hit a two-run shot for his first career home run and Daniel Murphy drove in the other run for the Mets, who have lost four straight.

Dillon Gee (9-9) allowed four runs on 10 hits and a pair of walks in six frames, taking his first loss since July 27.

"I didn't have much command today. I knew it was going to be bad early on," said Gee. Not only are they good, but they're swinging their bats well. Definitely tough one through nine."

Austin Jackson singled to start the game. After Torii Hunter was retired, Cabrera clubbed his 42nd home run of the season.

In the third, Omar Quintanilla walked and later scored on Murphy's two-out blooper up the middle.

An inning later, Ike Davis walked to start the inning but Justin Turner grounded into a double play. Juan Lagares hit an infield single and d'Arnaud smashed a 1-0 pitch to center to give the Mets a 3-2 lead.

However, the Tigers would retake the lead for good in the sixth. Martinez singled to left to lead off before Dirks hammered a two-run shot to right.

A seven-run ninth sealed the game for Detroit. With LaTroy Hawkins pitching, Hunter, Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Martinez hit consecutive singles, the last of which scored Hunter. Hawkins then walked Dirks, bringing Cabrera home, and was replaced by Scott Atchison.

Infante plated Fielder with a single to left, then pinch-runner Bryan Holaday scored on a wild pitch. Santiago and pinch-hitter Tuiasosopo hit back-to-back RBI singles and Jackson capped the inning by scoring Santiago on a sacrifice fly.

Game Notes

Cabrera has 10 home runs in his last 19 games ... In six career games against the Mets, Dirks is 8-for-14 with four home runs and six RBI. He also recorded his first multi-RBI game since July 4 ... Hunter was 1-for-6 ... The Mets are 5-for-34 with runners in scoring position over their last five games. Overall, they are hitting .244 with RISP this season.

While the Detroit Tigers just got the best of the New York Mets' ace, they face another potential difficult matchup.

The visiting Tigers go for a three-game sweep of the Mets, who send Dillon Gee -- one of baseball's hottest pitchers over the last three months -- to the mound Sunday.

Max Scherzer outdueled Matt Harvey in a rematch of All-Star game starters, leading Detroit (76-53) to a 3-0 win Saturday. Scherzer, who joined Rube Marquard in 1912 and Roger Clemens in 2001 as the only pitchers to start 19-1 in a season, also delivered an RBI double -- one of the team's 15 hits.

The Tigers, who have posted a .328 average in winning five of seven, have collected at least 11 hits in all but one of those games. Omar Infante and Andy Dirks both had three hits Saturday, while Miguel Cabrera, Austin Jackson and Matt Tuiasosopo each added two.

W: M. Scherzer (19-1) L: M. Harvey (9-5) S: J. Benoit (17)
HR: DET - None   NYM - None


In addition to recording his first hit since 2009, Max Scherzer struck out 11 batters over six scoreless innings to lift the Detroit Tigers over Matt Harvey and the New York Mets, 3-0, in the second test of a three-game series.

Not only did Scherzer become the first 19-game winner in the majors Saturday, but he also became only the third pitcher in major league history to win at least 19 of his first 20 decisions in a season.

The 29-year-old Scherzer (19-1) gave up three hits and walked four batters, while Harvey (9-5) allowed two runs on a career-high 13 hits over 6 2/3 innings.

"Everybody through the lineup plays well every time I take the mound, and that's the reason I'm 19-1 -- not because I'm pitching well, but because everyone else is stepping up and doing their job," Scherzer said.

Saturday marked the first time in major league history that the All-Star Game starting pitchers faced each other in a regular-season game in the same season.

Scherzer helped his own cause in the second inning. Andy Dirks doubled to right-center field, advanced to third on Brayan Pena's single to left-center field and scored on Scherzer's double to left-center field. Austin Jackson's infield single scored another run to make it 2-0.

"It was pretty crappy. Giving up 13 hits is not ideal as a starting pitcher," Harvey said. "I was not happy about giving up runs, and I gave up too many hits. It was just a poor performance."

Meanwhile, Scherzer was dominant on the mound. The Mets didn't advance a runner past first base until the sixth. Daniel Murphy singled, Ike Davis doubled and Wilmer Flores walked to load the bases. Scherzer was able to settle down and retired the next two batters to keep New York off the board.

Don Kelly's sacrifice fly in the ninth made it a 3-0 game.

Jose Alvarez tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings, Jose Veras recorded the final two outs in the eighth and Joaquin Benoit pitched a perfect ninth to secure the victory. Benoit picked up his 17th save of the season.

Game Notes

The Tigers had 15 hits, compared to three for New York ... In 1912, Giants left-hander Rube Marquard was 19-0 when he suffered his first loss. He finished 26-11. Roger Clemens opened 19-1 for the 2001 Yankees. He increased his record to 20-1 before he lost his final two decisions to finish at 20-3.

For the first time in major league history, All-Star starting pitchers will collide in the same regular season.

Detroit's Max Scherzer went up against Matt Harvey of the New York Mets on July 16 at Citi Field. Although the circumstances were such that neither pitcher would get a chance to show off by pitching a multitude of innings, both pitched relatively well. Scherzer threw a perfect inning, while Harvey gave up a double to start the contest and then hit a batter before settling down and retired the next six batters, including three strikeouts.

Scherzer, who is 5-0 over his last six starts, is the first pitcher in the majors off to an 18-1 start since Roger Clemens in 2001 for the New York Yankees. Clemens won 20 of his first 21 decisions that season before finishing 20-3.

Only once in his last nine starts has Scherzer given up more than two earned runs, and that resulted in his lone loss, 7-1 to the Texas Rangers on July 13.

It's been more than one calendar year since Scherzer suffered a road loss, July 30, 2012 at Boston. Since then, he's won 10 straight road decisions.

This will be the fourth time (3rd start) for Scherzer facing the Mets. He's 1-0 with a 4.26 ERA.

Harvey has a mediocre 2-3 mark over his last nine starts, but his 2.25 ERA is second-best in the National League, only behind Cy Young Award favorite Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Harvey's 187 strikeouts are also second-most in the NL, one behind Kershaw.

The top of the Detroit Tigers lineup came through in a big way Friday night.

Austin Jackson, Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera each hit a home run as the Tigers defeated the New York Mets, 6-1, in the opener of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Cabrera and Hunter each had a pair of hits, with Cabrera driving in three runs for the Tigers. Omar Infante also had two hits with a run scored.

Doug Fister (11-6) gave up one run on eight hits and two walks over 6 1/3 innings.

"It's just a matter of getting in a groove and being able to make the fine- tune adjustments," Fister said. "Today, I was battling myself a lot with my sinker and a couple of other things, but I was able to put out when I needed to."

Marlon Byrd drove in the lone run for New York. Daisuke Matsuzaka (0-1), who signed with the Mets on Thursday, got the start but struggled in his season debut, surrendering five runs on six hits and a walk through five frames.

"He pitched good, he kept us in the game," said Mets manager Terry Collins. "I thought the last two innings, he was very, very good. He used his fastball to set up his off-speed pitches effectively. I was really, really impressed."

Hunter clubbed an 0-2 pitch with one out in the first, only for the Mets to respond in the home half. Eric Young hit a leadoff single, stole second, and scored on Marlon Byrd's single to left.

However, the Tigers pounded Matsuzaka for four runs in the second. Infante started the inning with an infield single. After a line out by Jose Iglesias and a sacrifice bunt from Fister, Jackson walked.

Hunter then hit a ground rule double to center. Cabrera followed with a three- run shot to left. He hammered the first pitch thrown by Matsuzaka to give Detroit a 5-1 lead.

Jackson added to the lead with a solo shot to left in the seventh.

The Mets had opportunities to score with two on and two out in the seventh and in the eighth, but failed to capitalize on both chances.

They had another shot in the ninth, after Young ripped a two-out double to right, but Bruce Rondon retired Daniel Murphy to end the game.

Game Notes

Cabrera has reached base safely in each of his last 26 games. He also has 19 three-RBI games this season, second-most in team history. Only Hank Greenberg has more, with 23, set in 1935 ... Young went 3-for-5 ... Murphy had a nine- game hitting streak snapped ... The Mets were 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position and left 10 runners on base.

After adding Daisuke Matsuzaka to their injury-plagued rotation, the New York Mets aren't going to waste any time getting him the ball.

Matsuzaka will make his first big league start in almost a year Friday night in the opener of a three-game home set against the first-place Detroit Tigers.

With starters Jenrry Mejia (elbow) and Jeremy Hefner (torn MCL) out for the season, the Mets (58-67) are hoping to get a boost from Matsuzaka. The 32-year-old right-hander will take the mound in place of Carlos Torres, who was originally scheduled to start.

Matsuzaka, who signed a one-year deal Thursday following his release from Cleveland two days earlier, went 5-8 with a 3.92 ERA over 19 starts with the Indians' Triple-A team in Columbus.

Matsuzaka hasn't pitched in the majors since going 1-7 with an 8.28 ERA in 11 starts with Boston last year. While he helped lead the Red Sox to a World Series title during his 2007 rookie season and went 18-3 in 2008, he is 17-21 with a 5.49 ERA in 55 starts since the start of 2009.

Matsuzaka is 4-1 with a 3.19 ERA in six outings against the Tigers, though he hasn't faced them since 2010. Miguel Cabrera is 4 for 9 with a homer off him, and Prince Fielder is 2 for 3 with two doubles.
