FINAL SCORE: RED SOX 9, METS 3
IN BRIEF: Gorkys Hernandez went 2-for-3, including a three-run homer, and Rafael Devers had two hits to improve his spring average to .571 to lead the Red Sox to a 9-3 spring training victory over the New York Mets in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Hernandez, the former San Francisco Giant, was signed to a minor league deal before spring training to add to Boston’s outfield depth. Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez pitched two scoreless innings but drew criticism from manager Alex Cora for his lack of efficiency.
