0

NEW YORK CITY, New York: The Detroit Tigers’ potent bats gave Japanese pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka a rude welcome in his return to Major League Baseball with the New York Mets on Friday. Matsuzaka, who helped the Boston Red Sox win the 2007 World Series, gave up five runs on six hits with one walk through five innings in his first start for the Mets, who signed him on Thursday to bolster an injury-depleted pitching rotation. The 32-year-old right-hander had been released by the Cleveland Indians earlier in the week after spending all season with their top minor league team.
