LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Max Scherzer struck out six in 2 2-3 hitless innings Friday and the Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Mets 3-2.

Scherzer walked three. He was taken out after retiring the first two batters in the third inning.

Mets starter Dillon Gee allowed one hit in four innings. He gave up one run.

Tigers minor leaguer Tyler Collins hit a solo home run to break a tie in the eighth. The 22-year-old outfielder, who hasn’t played above Class A, leads the team with 10 hits this spring.

Jordany Valdespin homered for the Mets.
