Final Score: Red Sox 6, Mets 4—Carlos Torres goes from hero to goat

Matt Harvey pitched well, but Carlos Torres got shelled in the tenth.

The Mets' seven-game winning streak came to an end tonight as they lost 6-4 to the Red Sox in ten innings.

It wasn't Matt Harvey's fault. The Dark Knight pitched six brilliant innings in his return to the mound. He allowed only two hits, and from start to finish was in the mid-to-upper nineties with his fastball. Sadly, the offense failed to get much going against Henry Owens, but still had a 2-0 lead going into the seventh thanks to some gutsy baserunning by Wilmer Flores and a Rusney Castillo error in right field.

The Red Sox took the lead against Logan Verrett in the seventh thanks to two homers off the bats of David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley Jr., but the Mets tied the game in the bottom half of the inning when Alexi Ogando walked in a run. The score remained 3-3 until the tenth inning, when Carlos Torres—who clearly needed to pitch again after his Herculean effort last night—coughed up three runs to give the Sox a 6-3 lead.

Junichi Tazawa did his best to keep the Mets' winning streak alive by walking in another run in the bottom of the tenth, but Craig Breslow relieved him and induced a bases loaded fly out to center off the bat of Yoenis Cespedes to send the Mets home with a loss.
