Score: Detroit 4, Mets 2
Spring record: 0-1
Game breakdown: Mike Pelfrey was sharp, giving up one hit in two scoreless innings. “I think I did some things right and itâ€™s a starting point at getting better,â€™â€™ Pelfrey said. â€¦ Ramon Castro drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the first and Anderson Machado tripled in a run in the second. â€¦ Detroit scored four runs in the seventh off reliever Willie Collazo.
Clubhouse chatter: Itâ€™s not like back home, but it was cold by Florida standards. So cold the Mets served hot soup in the clubhouse before the game. Said Marlon Anderson: “I think we drove all the way to Detroit.â€™â€™
