Mets beat Red Sox 5 - 3 in Game 42 of season

It started in the first inning, when the Red Sox came away with nothing after having two men on base with no one out, and by the time the game was over, Boston had left 10 on the basepaths.

Daisuke Matsuzaka took the loss in his first start since April 14.

Mets - 010 300 100 - 5 8 3
Red Sox - 010 200 000 - 3 6 1

Dice was strong out of the gate, retiring ten of his first 11 batters on only 37 pitches. But he faltered in the fourth, after a missed chance at a double play would have ended the inning with the Mets up only 2-1.

On a night when Eckersley blatantly said "shit" on the air (mid-inning, not when he thought he was off-air), the Red Sox and their fans can say the same thing.
