The New York Mets made their way to Boston to take on the Red Sox on Monday night, hoping to even up their record at 2-2, just like their hosts. After a rough outing on Sunday, they quickly turned things around, bashing the Red Sox early on to establish a big 7-0 lead after four innings via the long ball.
Michael Conforto went yard for two in the second, Pete Alonso had a two-run bomb in the third, and Dominic Smith joined the party with a three-run blast in the fourth. That, effectively, sealed the win despite an attempted Red Sox comeback in the later innings. That was led by shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who had a sac fly and a home run in successive innings. However, they only scraped four runs across the plate, leading to a 7-4 loss and a dropping of their record to 1-3 on the season thus far.
