Poor baserunning and Boston power lead to Mets defeat

Poor baserunning and Boston power lead to Mets defeat

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports A big inning was avoided, and the team never quite recovered. The Mets/Red Sox game last night was a microcosm of the season thus far. It started off looking good, some adversity was overcome, the Mets struck early, and then the wheels fell off.

Marcus Stroman started off strong for the Mets, flashing a good slider and keeping the Sox’s potent offense quiet for the first two innings. In the third, Stroman ran into some trouble, loading the bases...
