The Mets' split squads both lost spring training games on Thursday.

Astros 8, Mets 5 (Box)

The Mets nearly came back late in their home spring training game against the Astros but came up short. Yoenis Cespedes mistook a ball at the base of the outfield fence as being stuck, resulting in an inside-the-park home run for the Astros. Matt Harvey had his second straight rough spring outing, at least as far as results go. But again, it's spring training.

Red Sox 4, Mets 1 (Box)

The Mets' road squad took on the Red Sox, but they, too, lost. The highlight here was Logan Verrett, who threw four scoreless innings.
