NEW YORK -- Stuck in a batting slump all week, the New York Mets seemed unlikely to even get a hit. New York Jets Jerseys . Scoring? That looked downright impossible. Yet somehow, they rallied. The Mets suddenly struck for three runs in the ninth inning against Philadelphias makeshift bullpen minus closer Jonathan Papelbon, then ended a five-game skid by beating the Phillies 5-4 Sunday on Ruben Tejadas single in the 11th. "Desperate? You can call it desperate if you want to, but we have to stay positive," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "I dont know, standing on the edge of the cliff probably is a better way to describe it." Down 4-1 with only three outs left, the punchless Mets fought back, sparked by Daniel Murphys two-run homer. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Papelbon was sore and unavailable to pitch in a third straight game. "The daily grind of the season," Papelbon said. "Its just kind of a product of the last couple of games." Lefty reliever Antonio Bastardo and Roberto Hernandez -- who started Friday night -- quickly let the Phillies lead slip away. In the 11th, Chris Young opened with an infield single, barely beating the flip from second baseman Chase Utleys glove. The Mets sent up pitcher Zack Wheeler as a pinch-hitter, and he put down a perfect sacrifice bunt that moved Young to second. Juan Lagares drew an intentional walk and Anthony Recker loaded with the bases with another infield hit stopped by diving third baseman Reid Brignac. Tejada won it with one out, hitting a sharp single to left-centre against Jeff Manship (1-1). Tejadas teammates chased him down in short right field to celebrate. "It feels pretty good after a rough week for me and the team," said Tejada, who recently lost his starting job at shortstop. Scott Rice (1-1) got Brignac on a grounder with two runners on to finish the 11th. Held to a total of nine runs in their previous five games, the Mets began their comeback in the ninth when Eric Young Jr. led off with a double and Murphy followed with a home run that made it 4-3. Chris Young ended his 0-for-18 slump by hitting a one-out double off the wall, and Hernandez emerged from the bullpen -- he threw 99 pitches in the series opener. Pinch-hitter Bobby Abreu singled off the glove of a diving Utley, and a slow grounder by Lagares drove in the tying run. When Tejada came up in the 11th, he said he had one thought in mind: "Finish the game." The Mets comeback denied Cole Hamels his elusive first win of the year and the 100th of his career. He struck out 10 in seven innings while throwing a whopping 133 pitches, the most by any major leaguer since San Franciscos Tim Lincecum tossed 148 in his no-hitter last July 13. The Mets started quickly when Young Jr. led off with a single and stole second, Murphy walked and David Wright hit an RBI single. NOTES: A day after making his debut, the Mets Eric Campbell singled for his first big league hit. ... Jonathon Niese struck out twice, leaving Mets pitchers 0 for 63 at the plate this year. ... The four-game Subway Series begins Monday night at Yankee Stadium with Mets RHP Bartolo Colon (2-5, 5.36 ERA) facing RHP Hiroki Kuroda (2-3, 4.43). The teams play twice in the Bronx before shifting across town for two more at Citi Field. The Mets went 4-0 against the Yankees last year. ... Lefty-hitting Curtis Granderson didnt start vs. Hamels, but Collins said the outfielder would be in the lineup Monday night. It will be Grandersons first game in the Bronx since leaving the Yankees in the off-season, signing with the Mets and saying: "A lot of the people Ive met in New York have always said that true New Yorkers are Mets fans." ... Several players swung pink bats on Mothers Day to support the fight against breast cancer. In keeping with the days theme, Mets reliever Carlos Torres asked the team to play the hip-hop song "Dear Mama" by the late Tupac Shakur over the PA system if he got into the game Sunday. Torres didnt pitch. ... It was Bark at the Park Day to support pet rescue and adoption. Many fans brought their dogs for a pregame parade around the warning track. Not barking was longtime Mets hot dog vendor Willie B, popular for his loud woofing in the second deck. He said his back was hurting, so he was carrying a lighter tray of pretzels. Real dogs are allowed to sit with their owners in the right-field porch at these Bark events -- on those days, Willie B says he instead refers to his usual wares as "frankfurters, out of respect." Sam Darnold Jets Jersey .com) - Maria Sharapova rallied for a three- set win over Ana Ivanovic on Saturday to capture the season-opening Brisbane International tennis tournament. Sam Darnold Jersey . The team announced the moves before Sundays game against Houston. Shaw was 1-4 with a 4.26 ERA in 43 games for the Diamondbacks. Bergesen was claimed off waivers from Baltimore on Friday. http://www.jetsrookiestore.com/Jets-Trenton-Cannon-Jersey/ . -- Maxence Parrot of Bromont, Que.BALTIMORE - The Detroit Tigers starting pitchers in the first three games of the AL Division Series have a combined 329 wins, three Cy Young Awards and 35 games of post-season experience.Baltimores starters carry less impressive credentials, yet they dont necessarily have to outpitch their Detroit counterparts for the Orioles to advance.All they have to do is keep it close, then hand the baseball over to one of the best bullpens in major leagues.Detroit (90-72) didnt win as many games as the Orioles (96-66), who ran away with the AL East title to earn home-field advantage in the best-of-five series that begins Thursday. But the AL Central-champion Tigers have been installed as a slight favourite a€” mainly because of their formidable starting rotation.Max Scherzer (18-5, 3.15 ERA) starts on Thursday, followed by Justin Verlander (15-12, 4.54) and David Price (15-12, 3.26). That also happens to be a list of the last three AL Cy Young winners.Advantage, Detroit?I think we all know what it looks like on paper, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday. But theres a lot of things that look a certain way on paper for us that we were able to overcome.Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman (13-6, 3.34 ERA) will make his first foray into the post-season in the opener. Although Showalter declined the announced his starters for Friday and Sunday, they will likely be Wei-Yin Chen (16-6, 3.54) and Miguel Gonzalez (10-9, 3.23), each of whom has pitched in exactly one playoff game.If playoff experience and Cy Young Awards mean anything, then Detroit has a decent chance to reach the AL Championship Series for a fourth straight year.Pitching. Thats what wins ballgames, Price said. If we put up zeroes early, that kind of gives our offence a chance to kind of settle into the game. They know they dont have to put up a three- or four-spot because were down.But if a game is close in the seventh inning, the Orioles like their chances.Weve got a good bullpen, we have a good starting staff, said closer Zach Britton, who finished with 37 saves. Anytime theres a close game, were confident we can pull it out, and weve done that a lot this year.Britton (1.65 ERA) usually woorks the ninth inning. Avery Williamson Jersey. Andrew Miller (1.35 ERA in 23 games with Baltimore) or Darren ODay (1.70) take care of the eighth, following hard-throwing Tommy Hunter.Back in May, when Detroit last played the Orioles, Hunter (3-2, 2.97 ERA) was the closer and Miller was still pitching for Boston.Much has changed.Britton has really established himself since we last saw Baltimore. Hes one of the best closers in the game, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. They acquired Andrew Miller, who obviously had a track record coming in. And now youve got a closer who can pitch the sixth or seventh inning. Thats not a bad position to be in if youre the Orioles. Their bullpen has done a good job, and thats part of the reason theyve been so successful.Ausmus has been calling upon Joba Chamberlain to work the eighth and Joe Nathan to get the final three outs. The duo experienced mixed results during the regular season a€” Chamberlain was 2-5 with four blown saves and a 3.57 ERA, and Nathan finished 5-4 with seven blown saves and a lofty 4.81 ERA.Advantage Baltimore?Britton, from what Ive seen, his balls moving all over the place, Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter said. Theyve got a nice little bullpen over there. Weve seen some dirty pitching (in the AL Central), so I dont think it will be new, but it will be tough. Those guys are good.Scherzer, meanwhile, hasnt faced the Orioles since June 17, 2013. He knows this much: Baltimore led the majors with 211 home runs, so the right-hander had better be careful.A team that swings the bat like that, theyre dangerous, he said. Theyre dangerous one through nine. Thats something I know going into the start. They need to have a good game plan against me and I need to have a good game plan against them.In other news, Ausmus declined to name his 25-man roster in part because of the status of injured outfielder Rajai Davis, who has pelvic strain.Rajai came in today, felt much better, but weve got to get past the point of his making some baseball moves in terms of running, exploding out of the box and taking swings, which he hasnt done yet, said Ausmus, who has until 10 a.m. Thursday to make his final decision.
