Bless You Boys: Mets 4, Tigers 3 - Tigers can't rally late, drop series finale
The Tigers entered Sunday's game in New York looking to win their first road series since, coincidentally, they were last in New York and took two of three games from the Yankees at the beginning of April. Despite an early lead, and two valiant late inning rallies, they were unable to get the win, as they dropped the finale by a score of 4-3. Spencer Turnbull, who had not pitched past six innings in any of his last three starts, provided a strong start, going seven innings and striking out eight, though he gave up four earned runs and seven hits.
Detroit Free Press: Detroit Tigers go down looking vs. Mets on questionable strikeout call
QUEENS, N.Y. -- Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire hadn't looked at the replay because there was nothing he could do about it. Instead, he was standing behind a desk inside the visiting manager's office at Citi Field, sounding like he did the day before.
The Tigers fought, they had a chance, they couldn't get the big hit.
But nearby, JaCoby Jones was looking at the replay of the final pitch of Sunday's series finale against the Mets, a 96.8 mph fastball from closer Edwin Diaz that was close enough for Strike 3. Jones eventually offered this assessment of home plate umpire Jerry Meals' call: "It was off the plate.
Amazin' Avenue: Wheeler and Hechavarria power the Mets over the Tigers
No one really thought that the Tigers, who have the fourth worst record in baseball, would give the Mets a tense, back and forth series, but here we are. After dropping Friday night's slugfest and winning last night's slog, the Mets took the series in a third straight one-run game, winning 4-3 on a gorgeous Queens afternoon.
Nicholas Castellanos was the bad guy early in the game, hitting a solo home run in the bottom of the first, and then driving in two more in the third. After Castellanos reached in the third, Mets' starter Zack Wheeler did not allow another baserunner until JaCoby Jones led off the eighth inning with a single.

Spencer Turnbull gave the Tigers' bullpen a much needed breather, neutralized the New York Mets much of the afternoon, and generally pitched a fine game.
But one inning was forgettable. One pitch, actually. And it was that fourth inning that led to the Mets' 4-3 victory Sunday.
The Mets scored four runs in the fourth, the big hit a three-run home run by Adeiny Hechavarria, making it 4-3.
Turnbull went seven innings, which was desperately needed after the bullpen was taxed in a 13-inning loss the day before.
Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler had trouble against Nick Castellanos, but stymied nearly everyone else in the Tigers' lineup.
Detroit Free Press: Detroit Tigers blow too many chances at the plate in marathon loss to Mets
QUEENS, N.Y. -- At the end of Saturday's marathon, Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire had next to nothing at his disposal.
Nobody on his bench, only one relief pitcher in the bullpen -- closer Shane Greene, who was reserved for a save situation -- and just a few starting pitchers in the Tigers' dugout with their cleats on.
So, with two outs in the top of the 13th inning, Gregory Soto -- the rookie left-hander who went 2-for-2 on Friday night in his first time hitting since his teenage years --stepped into the Tigers' on-deck circle.
