Game Recap: Mets issue 10 walks, fall to Red Sox 6-3

By Danny Abriano

Jon Niese was great for two innings before faltering in his third frame, and the Mets lost to the Red Sox by the score of 6-3 at Tradition Field on Sunday.

Game Recap:

The Mets took a 1-0 lead in the second when Wilmer Flores‘ infield single to second base resulted in a wide throw that allowed Kirk Nieuwenhuis to score from second base.

In the top of the third, Boston plated two runs – one on an RBI single and the other courtesy of a bases loaded walk by Tyler Pill.

The Mets tied things, 2-2, in the fourth on a run-scoring fielders choice, but the Red Sox scored three off a wild Hansel Robles in the fifth to take a 5-2 lead.

A wild pitch by Akeel Morris allowed Boston to plate a run in the seventh as they increased their lead to 6-2, a run the Mets got back in their half of the inning when Juan Lagares‘ RBI single drew them within 6-3. However, they couldn’t get any closer.


  • Jon Niese gave up two runs on three hits and a walk in 2.2 innings of work.
  • Mets pitchers overall were incredibly wild, walking 10 Boston batters.
  • Wilmer Flores made a pair of nice plays at shortstop – the first on a diving play to snatch a liner, the second on a ball in the hole where he planted and fired to first for the out.
  • Cory Mazzoni worked around a walk in a scoreless inning of work.
  • Gabriel Ynoa gave up a leadoff hit but pitched a scoreless frame.
