Before and after, it's been a different story.

For a second straight night Michael Conforto failed to deliver in a big spot.

Their best opportunity to score came in the bottom of the eighth inning, when Pete Alonso was on third and Ryan Cordell, pinch-running for JD Davis, was on second with a stolen base.

The Red Sox pitchers worked back against Conforto in both cases, lagging behind in the count and then throwing pitches out of speed.

The Red Sox had lost four straight, including back-to-back games to the Mets in Boston on Monday and Tuesday, entering the series.

METS (3-3): 1. Rosario SS, 2. Conforto struck out against Brandon Workman with the bases loaded in the ninth inning on Wednesday, contributing to the Mets' 6-5 loss. The Mets went 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position with nine men left on base. It was the latest flop by Diaz, who blew the save in Saturday's loss to the Braves by allowing a home run to Marcell Ozuna with two outs in the ninth.


Lefty veteran Martin Perez, who shot a 5.12 ERA last year and had an equally lethargic start this year, thwarted the Mets by limiting them to two runs on two hits and four walks on 5 ² / ₃ innings.

After holding on for a 6-5 win over the Mets to snap a four-game losing streak, the Red Sox will be back at it Thursday night when they close out their series in NY. The Red Sox will look to even up their first series in the 2020 season. Christian Vasquez tied the game with a home run in the seventh inning and added a two-run single in the eighth inning to help propel the Red Sox to their first win in a week.New season, same Jackie.

Matz threw a 2-1 changeup down the middle in the second inning that Vazquez hammered for a solo homer.

Matz (0-1) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over 5 1/3 innings. Perez gave up six hits, five runs (four earned), and struck out two in five innings of work. In the inning, Wilson Ramos and Alonso each walked and Brandon Nimmo was hit by a pitch. The Mets took a short-lived lead in the third on a two-run single by Jeff McNeil, but Xander Bogaerts led off the fourth with a single before Vazquez homered just beyond the reach of left fielder J.D. Davis for a 3-2 edge.

NY is expected to send lefty Stephen Matz to the hill at Citi Field for the series finale against the Red Sox on Thursday.
