The Red Sox are back in action tonight with game 2 of their quick 2-game series against the Mets at Citi Field in New York.  The Sox won the first game last night 2 to 1 on a great pitching performance by Garrett Richards and the 1st home run of the season by Bobby Dalbec.  Richards was acquired in free agency in the off season and was dominate on the mound only giving up 1 run while striking out 10 Mets and not walking a single batter.

Tonight, the Sox send Nick Pivetta and his 2-0 record to the hump tonight against the 2-1 Jacob deGrom for the Mets.  deGrom is one of the best pitches in the National League with an impressive two Cy Young awards sitting on a shelf at home in his man-cave. Alex Verdugo will be back in the lineup tonight after missing the last two games after tweaking his hammy in Saturday’s game.

The Sox continue to impress sitting alone in the AL East with a 15-9 record.  The Rays and Blue Jays are 3 games in back of the Sox and the Orioles and Yankees are 4.5 games back.   Tonight’s first pitch is at 6:40.

Here’s the Sox lineup for tonight’s game…

  1. CF Kiké Hernández
  2. RF Alex Verdugo
  3. LF J.D. Martinez
  4. SS Xander Bogaerts
  5. 3B Rafael Devers
  6. C Christian Vázquez
  7. 2B Marwin Gonzalez
  8. 1B Bobby Dalbec
  9. P Nick Pivetta
