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.
