Nido powers Mets to win
Tomas Nido hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 13th inning Saturday night to send New York to a 5-4 home victory over Detroit.

Todd Frazier ended the contest 2-for-5. Hector Santiago picked up the win as he gave up one hit with three strikeouts and two walks over two innings of relief.

MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are 5-2 in their last seven Sunday games. Detroit is 1-5 in its last six games versus the NL East.
The Mets are 2-10 in their last 12 series finales. New York is 1-6 in its last seven Sunday games.
Detroit is bad offensively and couldn't capitalize on opportunities to get it done in extra innings last night. Wheeler has been inconsistent this season, but he was stellar last year and has had his moments this season where he's been stellar. This has the feelings of a get-well game and I like the Mets to pull out the win as favorites. Turnbull has regressed a bit and it's probably a closer representative of where he is as an MLB pitcher.
