Make it two straight wins for the Boston Red Sox over the first place New York Mets. Saturday's victory was a 3-1 with Joe Kelly dealing a 7.1 inning, one run performance.

Kelly has now won six games in August. In his last five starts he is 5-0 with an ERA of 1.69.

The Sox got just enough offense off Jacob deGrom and other Mets pitching. Mookie Betts hit a home run(12th) and Pablo Sandoval and Brock Holt knocked in the other two runs.

Don't look now but the Sox have won eight of their last 11 games.

Sunday it's Wade Miley vs Noah Syndergaard in the series finale.
