Both home runs came against Red Sox starting pitcher Kutter Crawford, who gave up four hits in four innings. He struck two and took no beating
New York starter Kodai Senga gave up three runs and three hits, had three hits and one walk in 3 1/3 innings.
The Red Sox led 1-0 when Jarren Duran scored from third at Justin Turner’s groundout in the first half, and led 3-0 after two rounds as Yu Chang drove on Connor Wong and Triston Casas in the third.
The Mets called first baseman/third baseman Mark Vientos of Triple-A Syracuse ahead of Friday’s game. Vientos replaces outfielder Starling Marte on the list. Marte was placed on the 10 injured list Thursday with migraine headaches
