Meet the Mets

The Mets fell to the Red Sox 2-1 on Tuesday night at Citi Field. David Peterson had a bounce back start after his poor outing in Chicago, going six innings and limiting Boston to two runs. Unfortunately for Peterson, the Mets could only score one run on their seven hits, that one run coming on a Jeff McNeil solo homer in the second inning.
