The New York Mets have a day off as the team is now on the road to get ready for what will be a National League Rivalry game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.
New York just saw two tough losses against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the final scores of 2-1 and 1-0.
In the game on Tuesday, the game started on a good note for the Mets. It was in the Bottom of the Second that Jeff McNeil homered to right field for the 1-0 lead. Boston battled back though as Bobby Dalbec homered to center field to make the game 1-1.
Boston plated another run in the Top of the Sixth as Rafael Devers had an RBI single, which gave the Red Sox a 2-1 lead.
It was the Red Sox rotation that was able to stand up and shut down the Mets offense that earned them the victory on Tuesday.
In the game on Wednesday the Red Sox were able to keep the Mets off the board in general, as Nick Pivetta did a tremendous job on the mound for Boston, striking out seven batters in five innings. On the other side for the Mets Jacob deGrom had another frustrating outing on the mound sitting down nine batters in six innings of work with no offensive support.
