Red Sox Nip Mets, 3-1



    Welcome Kindness With Come From Away
    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.
