Once again pitching is in control early as we are scoreless through 3. In the bottom of the 4th the Red Sox would break through against Swan. Jim Rice would hit a long 2 run homer to give the Red Sox the 2-0 advantage. The Red Sox would add another in the inning on an error by Doug Flynn.
The 3 runs would be all Torrez would need as he goes the distance throwing a shutout while only allowing 5 hits. The Mets have went 21 inning without scoring a run and are now down 0-2.
Final Score: Red Sox 3, Mets 0
WP: Mike Torrez (1-0)
LP: Craig Swan (2-1)
HR’s: Red Sox – Jim Rice (1)
