Red Sox Nip Mets, 3-1 - NBC New York

Red Sox Nip Mets, 3-1



    Red Sox Nip Mets, 3-1
    Mets starter Jacob deGrom recorded 10 strikeouts in six innings, but took the loss, his seventh against 12 wins.

    Joe Kelly won his sixth straight outing, recovering nicely from a rocky start to outpitch Jacob deGrom and lead the Boston Red Sox over the New York Mets 3-1 Saturday.

    Mookie Betts homered and scored twice as the last-place Red Sox won for the eighth time in 11 games. They have taken the first two this weekend at Citi Field after the NL East-leading Mets returned from an 8-1 road trip.

    New York has dropped five in a row at home, its worst skid of the season.

    The standing-room-only crowd of 43,255 was the second-largest in the regular season at 7-year-old Citi Field, behind opening day in April.
