Potential Detroit Tigers closer Bruce Rondon gave up his first run in three spring training outings today.

Entering for the fifth, he allowed a leadoff single to Justin Turner. Rondon retired the next two hitters, then -- with the runner on third -- did something that usually is a bad idea for any pitcher: He walked the No. 2 hitter, Ruben Tejada, with two out, thus allowing the inning to reach the No. 3 hitter, often the best hitter on the team.

He was ahead of Tejada, 1-2, before he walked him.

The Mets’ No. 3 hitter was All-Star third baseman David Wright. There were runners on first and third. It was Rondon’s most interesting moment yet this spring.

Rondon fell behind, 2-0, and pitching coach Jeff Jones visited the mound. Wright pulled the next pitch to left for a line-drive RBI single.

Rondon retired the next hitter, cleanup man Ike Davis, on a first-pitch grounder to second.

Facing the hitters before Wright, Rondon often threw in the high 90s, as usual. Against Wright, his three pitches were all 94 or 95 m.p.h., according to the radar gun on the Mets telecast.

Rondon’s totals this spring: Three games, 2 2/3 innings, three hits, four walks, five strikeouts.
