Bartolo Colon allowed one run over three innings in his exhibition season debut, Lucas Duda and Neil Walker homered and a New York Mets split squad beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 Monday.

Colon, a 42-year-old portly right-hander, gave up four hits, struck out two and walked none.

In his second spring training outing for Detroit, former Met Mike Pelfrey allowed three runs -- two earned -- and three hits in 2 1/3 innings.

Asdrubal Cabrera's two-run single and Yoenis Cespedes' RBI single in the third gave the Mets a 3-1 lead.

Casey McGehee and James McCann had run-scoring singles for the Tigers.

New York relievers Antonio Bastardo and Jeurys Familia each pitched a scoreless inning. Familia, the Mets' closer, made his first game appearance since the World Series.

Detroit third baseman Nick Castellanos made a throwing error in the third and left one inning later because of back tightness.
