Garrett Richards turned in the best start of the young season, allowing just one run over seven innings and the Red Sox began their road trip with a 2-1 victory over the New York Mets.

Richards, who had huge wildness problems in his last outing, didn't issue a single walk and fanned 10 to pick up his first win with his new team.

Bobby Dalbec erased a 1-0 New York lead with his first homer of the season in the third inning. A bloop single from Rafael Devers plated Kiké Hernández in the sixth inning.
