NEW YORK, June 18 (UPI) -- Mike Cameron homered with two out in the ninth Friday night as the New York Mets rallied for a 3-2 win over Detroit.
New York's Mike Piazza was honored prior to the game and then helped short-circuit a threat in the top of the ninth.
Detroit had runners at the corners with one out in the ninth, but Piazza pounced on a bunt in front of the plate and tagged out Alex Sanchez, who never left the batter's box. Braden Looper (1-1) retired pinch-hitter Carlos Guillen on a flyout, keeping the score tied, 2-2.
Danny Patterson (0-4) got two quick outs in the bottom half, but Cameron smacked a 2-2 pitch well back in the bleachers beyond the left field fence for his ninth home run.
