PORT ST. LUCIE, FLA. (AP) - Oliver Perez’s outing Wednesday alarmed his manager, not because he gave up six runs but because he walked six in 3 2-3 innings of the New York Mets’ 10-6 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday.

Tigers starter Nate Robertson left the game with a sprained thumb on his pitching hand. Robertson, competing for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, was hit by a throw while trying to cover first base in the bottom of the first inning.

Carlos Beltran went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in his return to the Mets’ lineup. Carlos Delgado went 0-for-2.

Tigers’ shortstop Adam Everett also left the game in the top of the first after spraining his ankle sliding into second base.
