Alex Colome yielded a hit and a walk but hung on to record his 29th save of the season Tuesday versus the Red Sox.
On to protect a one-run lead, Colome permitted a one-out single to Hanley Ramirez and a two-out walk to Chris Young, but he got Sandy Leon looking to end the threat. Colome has been shaky in his last two save chances, blowing one, but he's nailed down 29 in 31 chances overall this season.
Curtis Granderson homered twice and drove in three runs as the Mets beat the Marlins 7-4 on Tuesday.
Granderson didn't even start Tuesday's game, entering as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning. He hit a solo homer in that at-bat, and an inning later Granderson hit a two-run dinger to give him 22 homers on the year. They've come with the usual Granderson caveat, of course, of a .223/.314/.433 line in 122 games.
An MRI taken Tuesday on Cameron Maybin's injured left thumb showed no major damage.
Maybin tweaked the previously-sprained thumb Monday while attempting to steal second base in the fifth inning and was held out of action Tuesday. He probably won't play Wednesday either, but this shouldn't be an extended absence because it's just a bruise. Great news for the Tigers.
Luke Maile hit a game-tying two-run homer in Tuesday's comeback win over the Red Sox.
Maile knotted the game up and knocked out Drew Pomeranz with his two-out blast in the seventh inning. Evan Longoria then put the Rays up in the next frame with a dinger of his own. The young catcher has been swinging a hot bat of late with 11 hits over his last 24 at-bats.
Melky Cabrera was removed from Tuesday's game against the Tigers due to dehydration.
He was 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout before getting replaced in the bottom of the seventh inning by J.B. Shuck. Cabrera will likely sit out of Wednesday afternoon's series finale at Detroit's Comerica Park.
