New York’s ninth beat Boston’s 7-4 at Fenway Park thanks to the offensive power of men like Michael Conforto.
It was a perfect night. While Michael Wacha controlled the Red Sox offense from the mound, another Michael, Conforto, took it out of the stadium. And then Pete Alonso and Dominic Smith for the victory of the Mets 7-4 in Boston, in an empty cement mass like Fenway Park.
In fact, at one point the board reflected a score of 7-0 in what looked like a shutout, but Boston’s ninth responded, was more aggressive at the plate, took advantage of a couple of errors and managed to scratch the scoreboard.
Dominican Amed Rosario left with a 5-2, and a run scored, while Venezuelan Wilson Ramos closed his night with a 4-2 and a run through the pad. Second win for the Mets this Friday will be measured again with the Red Sox before the four-game series moves to New York.
Meanwhile, in the other game that closed the MLB matchday, the Astros, with a José Altuve that reached 300 hits in his career, beat the Mariners 8-5.
