Jackie Bradley, Jr. hit a 2-run HR and Blake Swihart had an inside-the-park HR in the 10th inning to propel the Red Sox to a 6-4 extra-inning win over the Flushing Metropolitans. Rookie starter Henry Owens pitched five strong innings—giving up just one earned run, while striking out six. David Ortiz clouted his 27th HR of 2015 and the 493rd of his career—while Xander Bogaerts had two hits and an RBI. The Boston win halted a 7-game winning streak by the Mets—who welcomed back David Wright to Ctiti Field for the first time since April. The Carmine Hose are now 7-3 in their last 10 games.
