Final Score: Red Sox 4, Mets 2—Wanted: One Big Hit

If there is one lesson to be learned from tonight’s Mets game, it’s that you need to produce with runners in scoring position to win baseball games. This is, to most, common knowledge, but somebody might want to tell the Mets.

In a 4-2 loss to the Red Sox, the Mets were a paltry 1-for-10 with RISP and left nine more runners on base. In an eighth inning rally where they had a runner on third with less than two outs, Michael Conforto struck out and, after Yoenis Cespedes walked to load the bases, Andres Gimenez grounded out to end the rally without a run.
