Mets 3, Tigers 1

DETROIT — Neil Walker hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the ninth, and the Mets avoided a sweep. The Tigers tied it with back-to-back infield singles in the seventh, but after escaping the eighth thanks to a Detroit baserunning blunder, New York retook the lead when Walker went deep off Francisco Rodriguez. Michael Conforto homered for the Mets in the seventh. Detroit has won 10 of 12.
