The Red Sox take the series over the Mets, two to one. After an initial loss in the first game, the Sox take the next two and series.
Game 1: Mets win 5-4
The first game was a little odd, as it rained out and continued the next day. However, the extra time did not help the Sox as they still fell 5-4.
The Red Sox took the lead early in the game 3-0, but then lost the lead in the fourth inning when Mets’ Brandon Nimmo and Daniel Vogelbach both homered for two runs and right after the game rained out. When it picked up the next day, the Red Sox scored again, but so did the Mets, which won the game for them.
Game 2: Red Sox win 8-6
The Red Sox treated this game like a mini home run derby, as they had multiple players with home runs. Justin Turner, Yu Chang, and Jarren Duran all had one home run each. Triston Casas had his first career multiple home run game, with his second being the go-ahead runs in the sixth inning.
James Paxton also pitched a good game, going for six innings, getting seven strikeouts, only giving up three runs in one inning, and going scoreless for the other five.
Game 3: Red Sox win 6-1
The Red Sox were able to take the series-deciding game in a dominating fashion, winning 6-1. The Sox got off to a big lead early, leading 5-0 by the end of the third inning. The Mets were able to get on the board in the fifth, but Rafael Devers hit a bomb that put the last nail in the coffin for the Mets in the seventh inning.
As the Red Sox take the series over the Mets, they move on to face Atlanta in Boston in a two-game series starting July 25.
