Final Score: Red Sox 6, Mets 3 - Yellow and Blue Sox?

Stroman falters in Fenway.

MLB: New York Mets at Boston Red Sox Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

It was appropriate that the Red Sox were wearing their yellow and blue uniforms tonight, as their game with the Mets, which they won 6-3, truly felt like a marathon. As games in Fenway Park tends to do, this game dragged on for over three and a half hours, despite their being vey little action outside of a few key moments.

The Mets got on the board first, but some poor base running from Pete Alonso limited the Mets’ big inning to just two runs. Alonso would add a solo home run in the seventh, but by that point, Marcus Stroman had lost the thread and put the Mets in a hole that they wouldn’t be able to dig out of.

Full recap to follow.
