Not that it mattered by why did G-Money Laird bat second?
The Mets jumped on the Tigers early with 2 in the second and 8 in the third. JV didn’t look good and left the game with nobody out, and two men on in the third, after a 58 minute rain delay.
The Tigers got on the board in the fourth with a one out double by Cabbie and a monster home run by B-Money Brennan Boesch.
The Mets came back with one run in their half of the fourth.
The Tigers had a chance to really cut into the lead. They sent 10 men to the plate in the fifth scoring 4 runs but Ryan Rayburn got caught looking with the bases loaded to end the rally.
The Tigers tried to claw there way back but the bullpen was horrible.
Verlander was charged with 5 earned runs in 2 innings.
Back at em tomorrow.
