A change of scenery could well be a good thing for Ron Roenicke’s men given the circumstances, and they’ll look to properly find their feet tonight as this AL vs NL interleague series shifts to New York and Citi Field for games 3 and 4.

Pitching looks like Boston’s biggest weakness, with the Crimson Hose getting shelled for 18 runs in their losses to the Mets this week. They’ve shown some fight on offense at times – Jackie Bradley Jr is off to a particularly hot start – but with ace Chris Sale out for the season following Tommy John surgery, it’s not clear how the BoSox will stop the runs from flooding in.
The Mets offense has looked sharp for its part, with Michael Conforto heading into tonight’s game with an impressive .375 batting average for the (admittedly young) season and teammate Pete Alonso stepping up to the plate having sent a laser home run over Fenway’s Green Monster in the last game.
Tonight’s matchup sees both teams return to their no.1 pitchers, meaning the Mets will start ace Jacob deGrom (0-1), while the BoSox will send Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) to the mound in the hope he can help turn around their fortunes – something that could be critical to the team’s morale ahead of a crunch AL East divisional series against arch rivals the New York Yankees later in the week.

Red Sox vs Mets live stream: how to watch tonight’s MLB game online in the US
Tonight’s Red Sox vs Mets game is an unusual one in that it’s being aired on three different channels – NESN across Boston and New England, SNY in the New York area, and also ESPN+ as a streaming-only option.
The latter is the way to go if you don’t have cable, as ESPN+ costs just $4.99 a month until August – and you can get it for even less if you sign up for an annual subscription.
The best value, however is the combined ESPN+, Disney Plus, and Hulu bundle for just $12.99 a month, which lands you all three premium streaming services for the price of a Denny’s breakfast.
The first pitch is due to be thrown at 7.10pm this Wednesday, which is 4.10pm PT.
