Detroit Tigers Mow Down Mets, 9-0
The Detroit Tigers continue to roll through Spring Training, clobbering the New York Mets today 9-0. Rick Porcello started the game and threw 4 shutout innings, scattering 4 hits and striking out 3. The rest of the Tiger pitching staff took it from there to complete the shutout. The Tigers are 10-1 (with 3 ties) in Grapefruit League action. Prince Fielder and Delmon Young had key hits to drive in runs and chase Mets starter Johan Santana from the game in the 3rd inning.
Andy Dirks and Delmon Young each had two hits for Detroit. The Tigers will host the St. Louis Cardinals tomorrow afternoon in Lakeland, Florida. Opening Day is just under 3 weeks away, and it looks like this Tiger team is ready to roar.
