Haase 2 HRs in twinbill, knocks in 6 as Tigers sweep Mets

DETROIT (AP) — Eric Haase homered in both games of a doubleheader, driving in six runs, and the Detroit Tigers tagged Max Scherzer in his return from a suspension to sweep the New York Mets with an 8-1 victory. Haase had five RBIs in the first game, including a go-ahead single in the eighth inning of a 6-5 comeback win, and then added one of Detroit’s two homers off Scherzer in the nightcap. The slumping Mets have lost eight of 10. They were playing their second consecutive doubleheader in three days after getting rained out three times since Saturday. New York had gone 25 doubleheaders without getting swept, since Washington took both games from the visiting Mets on Sept. 26, 2020. That was the second-longest such streak of the expansion era.
