Blake Swihart hit an inside-the-park home run in the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox stopped the New York Mets’ seven-game winning streak, holding on for a 6-4 victory Friday night.
The Red Sox, visiting the Mets for the first time since 2001, scored three times in the 10th. Swihart led off with a drive that appeared to clear the center field wall and bounce back into play, but the ball was ruled in play.
The NL East-leading Mets rallied in the bottom half when reliever Junichi Tazawa walked four straight batters with two outs to force home a run. Craig Breslow replaced Tazawa and retired Yoenis Cespedes on a fly ball for his first save.
Tommy Layne (1-1) got the win. Carlos Torre (5-6) took the loss.
Mets ace Matt Harvey pitched six shutout innings, giving up two hits and striking out eight.
