Game 128 – Mets (71-56) vs Red Sox (58-69)


For the first time since 2009 the Boston Red Sox head to Citi Field to take on the New York Metropolitans.

The Red Sox may not be having the best year to say the least, as they sit in the cellar in the AL East in what has been a disappointing season for the team from bean town. Anytime the Red Sox come to town it brings a certain buzz to Queens. Of course first thought goes to 1986, Mookie Wilson, Billy Bucker etc…

Regardless of how the Red Sox have performed this year they still bring in a formidable team with plenty of threats. The Mets are riding high on an 8 game winning streak and hope to continue that success back over to Citi Field where a Dark Knight will rise once more as Matt Harvey (11-7, 2.57 ERA) is opposed by young gun, Henry Owens (2-1, 4.50 ERA)

Tonight’s line-up are as follows:

Mets Red Sox
1. Juan Lagares CF 1. Mookie Betts CF
2. Curtis Granderson RF 2. Pablo Sandoval 3B
3. Yoenis Cespedes LF 3. Xander Bogaerts SS
