    After six: Detroit 4 Texas 0.

    In the bottom of the seventh, the Rangers put runners at first and second with nobody out. The Tigers called on John Hiller out of the bullpen. Hiller walked Maddox on four pitches to load the bases with nobody out. Dave Nelson was up and grounded into the 6-4-3 but Hal King did score to put the Rangers on the board. Two more walks reloaded the bases with two out. But Mincher grounded to second to end the inning.

    Jim Panther took the mound for the Rangers in the top of the eighth.

    Casey Cox took the mound for the Rangers in the top of the ninth.

    Chuck Seelbach took the mound for the Tigers in the bottom of the ninth, tasked to protect a three-run lead. The Rangers loaded the bases with one out. Mincher again came to bat with the bases loaded and again came up empty, harmlessly flying to right for the second out. Harrah then grounded to the short stop to end the game.

    The Tigers got 10 hits in the win.

    Final score: Detroit 4 Texas 1.

    There may be an LOL at the Mets thread in the MLB Forum but in this game the Mets are the best team in baseball throughout the month of April.

    But there is still 5 months to go.
