The Tigers' unbeaten streak stretched to three games. The Tigers' winless streak also stretched to four games. The Tigers coughed up a 3-1 lead before rallying for the 7-7 tie with the Mets.

On the good side of things, Andy Oliver managed to throw four innings without issuing a walk. Those were the seventh through 10th innings. He also gave up a hit. I wouldn't get too excited considering it was done against the back end of the Mets' travel squad, but it certainly beats walking the same bunch. Hopefully it's something he can build off. Matt Hoffman struck out one in an inning of relief, as did Collin Balester in 1 1/3.

On the bad end of things, Jacob Turner allowed six runs on four hits and two walks in just 1 2/3 innings.

And somewhere in the middle, Drew Smyly gave up a run on two hits and a walk, but made it through just two innings while throwing 43 pitches.

Alex Avila went 2-for-2 with a double, while Miguel Cabrera was 2-for-3 with a double. Gerald Laird had his first hit of spring.
