NY Times: Mets End Wild Week With Comeback Win Over the Tigers
Mike Stobe/Getty Images
Needing to play catch-up yet again, the Mets got their biggest swings from catchers Tomas Nido and Wilson Ramos in another dramatic win.
Nido homered against Buck Farmer leading off the 13th inning, Ramos went deep twice, and the Mets beat the Detroit Tigers, 5-4, on Saturday for another comeback victory during a wild homestand.
Nido -- Ramos's backup, who entered as a pinch-hitter in the 11th -- drove a 2-0 pitch from Farmer (3-4) just beyond a leaping center fielder JaCoby Jones at the wall in right-center field, ending a game full of wasted chances for both teams.

Wilson Ramos hit two home runs, drove in four runs in all, and picked off a baserunner. Then, his replacement -- backup catcher Tomas Nido -- hit a walk-off solo home run in the 13th inning to give the New York Mets a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
For the second day in a row, the Tigers grabbed a lead before their starting pitcher even took the mound. Niko Goodrum and Dawel Lugo hit singles to lead off the game, and Nicholas Castellanos scored Goodrum with a sacrifice fly to right.

QUEENS, N.Y. -- The mantra heading into the weekend was fight.
Arriving at Citi Field on a nine-game losing streak, Detroit Tigers won the first fight on Friday night against the New York Mets in a back-and-forth, series-opening win.
Saturday's middle game of the series proved a similar fight, with decidedly less offense. This one, the Tigers lost.
After both teams squandered scoring opportunities in extra innings, Tomas Nido hit a walk-off home run in the 13th inning off Buck Farmer for a 5-4 win to even the series for the Mets.

Bless You Boys: Tigers 9, Mets 8: THE TIGERS WON
I think it was during the fourth inning of this game, when the Mets managed to turn a 4-1 lead by the Tigers into a 5-4 game for the Mets themselves, that this was not going to be the kind of recap that found its narrative early and stayed on course.
Meaning only a fool would assume to know how this game would go.
Baseball has this wonderful, miserable way of changing course on a dime, and even when victory can seem assured, everything will switch on a dime. You will see the best and worst of teams.
Amazin' Avenue: Five Mets home runs not enough in loss to Tigers
The Mets entered the night having won four straight games and the Tigers entered the night having lost nine straight games, but both streaks ended in the Mets' 9-8 loss to Detroit in the first of a three-game series at Citi Field. It was a rollercoaster ride of a game that featured a lot of lead changes and a lot of home runs.
The Tigers, who came into the night last in the American League in hitting, jumped on Noah Syndergaard right away. Niko Goodrum led off the game with a walk and anyone that has watched enough Syndergaard starts can probably guess that he promptly stole second base.
Detroit Free Press: At long last, Detroit Tigers' losing streak snapped in big win vs. Mets
QUEENS, N.Y. -- They arrived earlier than usual on Friday afternoon, nearly everybody on the first bus to Citi Field.
Nobody knew if it was going to work, but they heard what Ron Gardenhire said a day earlier, about sticking together and playing for each other and fighting through the losing streak -- a bunch of bull that doesn't matter, some say -- and so they took early batting practice and ground balls, hoping that this would be the day they would be winners again.
"I don't know how many days it's been," Gardenhire said, hours later.

QUEENS, N.Y. -- The Detroit Tigers' losing streak is over.
In the first game of a nine-game road trip, the Tigers broke out their bats and won a beer league softball game against the New York Mets, 9-8.
The win snaps a nine-game losing streak.
The Tigers (19-29) jumped all over Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard early, scoring four runs in the first two innings, but most importantly, kept up the pressure. They lost the lead, tied the game, lost it again, but went ahead for good with three runs in the top of the seventh inning.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) -- JaCoby Jones homered and drove in four runs, including a go-ahead double in the seventh inning, and Miguel Cabrera also connected as the Detroit Tigers halted their nine-game losing streak Friday night with a wild 9-8 victory over the New York Mets.
In a back-and-forth slugfest between two teams swept by lowly Miami within the past week, Detroit blew an early 4-0 lead and later rallied three times from one-run deficits.
New York hit five home runs on a windy night at Citi Field, including a tie-breaking shot by pinch-hitter Aaron Altherr off winner Buck Farmer (3-3) in his first plate appearance with the Mets.
The Detroit News: Tigers end long losing streak with 9-8 victory over Mets
The prevailing message after Thursday's gut-wrenching loss to the Miami Marlins was how it was important to "stick together."
If ever a baseball team was going to fracture, the way the Tigers lost in the final inning with five unearned runs -- to the worst team in the league -- that could have been a time to begin pointing fingers and break apart.
But the Tigers insisted they wouldn't, and the way they pulled out a 9-8 victory Friday in New York against the Mets was a prime example of character and fortitude.
The victory ended an ugly 9-game losing streak.
