Swihart home run helps Red Sox surge past Mets in 10 innings

An inside-the-park home run by Blake Swihart in the 10th inning Friday night lifted the Red Sox to a 6-4 victory over the Mets.Swihart’s swat, which bounced high and hard off the center field wall before slipping past center fielder Juan Lagares, broke a 3-3 deadlock. Josh Rutledge and Xander Bogaerts padded the lead with an RBI apiece, helping to atone for a bullpen lapse from the Red Sox that led to extras in the first place.Reliever Alexi Ogando wasted a power outburst by the Red Sox bats to set up extra innings.
