This game was the most lopsided shutout loss in Mets history to this point.
The Tigers had more home runs (6) than the Mets had hits (5). Detroit's Bobby Higginson had three home runs...two two-run homers and a three-run homer...plus two walks in five plate appearances. It was the first time Mets pitchers had allowed six home runs in a game since April, 1978. Mark Clark gave up three, Joe Crawford two (both by Higginson), and Takashi Kashiwada allowed one.

I was at this game and it was great! It was Mike Piazza night and they were celebrating Mike Piazza and all the famous catchers were there like Johnny Bench, Yogi Berra, Carlton Fisk, and, of course, they were playing the Tigers so Lance Parrish was a coach and Pudge Rodriguez is their catcher so they were there too. It was 2-0 Tigers because of a base hit and a home run by Dmitri Young but then it was second and third for Tom Glavine and he got a 2-run base hit. Then it was another Mike who ended it in the bottom of the ninth: Mike Cameron, who drove one into the seats in left and the Mets won.

I was at that game with my dad my uncle and my cousin and it was great throughout the game. Mike Cameron hit the game winning home run and that's when he started to do the Sammy Sosa trot when he hits home runs. Also all the great catchers were there due to Mike Piazza night. It was so cool. Also I caught a foul ball by the Tigers' Omar Infante.

This was Jose Reyes' first appearance of 2004. He tripled in the 10th but was forced out at home after the Tigers walked the bases loaded. But Mike Cameron saved the day with a walkoff single.
Also Jose Parra's Mets debut, my scorecard says.

6-1 Mets! A clearly smooth game. Hidalgo earned his $12 million with a homer today!

I have one question for my fellow Mets fans. What is Willie Randolph doing lately with this bullpen? Using Mota too much, not using Sele at all, and Schoeneweis should get that severed tendon fixed. There is no reason we should have lost this game today. First time in, it's been so long I can't remember when we scored 7 runs and LOST!!! Bullpen needs to be managed a little bit better. Very disappointing loss, this one is hard to swallow considering what happened last week at Shea against the Phillies.

Detroit Tigers 15, Mets 7
My daddy took me to Comerica Park for my 7th birthday, and my first ever big league game. I told him I waited for this my whole life. My dad is a Mets fan from when he was a boy, but his dad got transferred to Michigan. We sat right behind the Mets dugout. In the first, the Mets got a 3- run homer, but the Tigers won 15-7.

This game highlighted the skills of RA Dickey and Jose Reyes as Dickey pitched eight strong knuckley innings and Reyes fell a double short of the cycle on the way to a 5 to nothing victory over the Tigers.

The starting pitcher for the Tigers was Armando Gallaraga, the one who lost the perfect game in early June due to the blunderous call of SAFE from umpire Jim Joyce. Armando wasn't perfect this night but he did get the win and in 2011 he will be pitching for the Arizona Diamondbacks. By the way, the D-Backs will be visiting Citi Field on Easter weekend (April 22-24,2011).
