The Mets finished 48-33 in home games in 2019.

The New Mets will attempt to bounce back from Wednesday's late-inning collapse when it hosts the Boston Red Sox at 7:07 p.m. Thursday.

Mets vs. Perez: Cano 7-39, Lowrie 13-31, Marisnick 6-21, Cespedes 5-15, Davis 2-8, Rosario 2-6, Ramos 3-7, Conforto 1-7, Rivera 0-5, McNeil 1-4, Alonso 0-3, Nunez 0-3, Cordell 0-3, Nimmo 1-2, Lugo 0-1.

Boston is scheduled to close out the series with erratic left-hander Martin Perez.

Perez was touched for four earned runs over five innings in his last outing, Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

Widening charity scandal engulfs Canada's Justin Trudeau
Now we await the result of the latest investigation of Trudeau by the parliamentary Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner. The prime minister says he did not know that WE Charity was selected to administer the Canadian Student Service Grant.

Red Sox vs. Matz: Pillar 0-3. That's because Perez has been able to generate soft contact, limiting them to an average exit velocity of only 86.9 miles per hour. NY hit.257 as a team with 3.3 extra base hits per game and 280 total doubles previous year. Davis LF, 5. Conforto RF, 6.

The teams meet for the third time this year. Christian Vazquez homered and popped a two-run single.

The 29-year-old lefty struggled down the stretch of the season last year, posting a 5.06 ERA over his final five starts. Boston pitchers struck out 10.1 hitters per game a year ago with a staff ERA of 4.70. He was particularly dominant at home too, going 8-2 with a 2.31 ERA at Citi Field compared to 2-8 with a 6.62 ERA away from Citi Field. Matz is facing the Red Sox for the first time in his career.

Most players are staying safe during the season by wearing these awesome game day face coverings.
