Key Moment In The Game: In my opinion the key moment was the bottom of the 7th when David Wright struck-out with the bases loaded and one out. The Mets were down 6-5 at the time and threatening to tie or move ahead but Wright when down swinging, the Mets couldn’t capitalize and lost the game. Tigers pitcher Phil Coke pitched very well in the 7th and did a great job getting out of trouble.
