Detroit Tigers baseball is officially back. Spring Training continues on Thursday for the Tigers as the club travels to First Data Field to play the New York Mets in Grapefruit League action.

Detroit Tigers players will return to the field on Thursday following a day off.

The club will to bounce back following a string following six straight losses.

Wins and losses don’t matter much in Spring Training, but the Tigers have had trouble keeping runners off the board so far.

Detroit has lost the past six games by respective scores of 11-6, 7-2, 8-5, 11-1, 5-2 and 11-1.

Thursday’s opponent, the New York Mets, open the day with the top record in the Grapefruit League at 10-3.

Considering last season’s World Series champs the Chicago Cubs finished last season with the second-worst record in the Cactus League at 11-19, there probably isn’t much to read into in terms of Spring Training records.

Elsewhere, Kyle Ryan struck out two in 1.1 frames, while Arcenio Leon continued to impress with another shutout inning.

On the hitting side of things, Andrew Romine collected three hits, a run scored and an RBI. Omar Infante also notched multiple base hits with a pair of singles, while five different Tigers collected RBI.
