The Syracuse Mets bounced back from Saturday’s loss with a 4-2 victory over the Worcester Red Sox in the series finale on Sunday afternoon at NBT Bank Stadium.
Syracuse won five of the six games against Worcester.
Veteran left-hander Mike Montgomery got the start for the Mets and he allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits over five innings while striking out four.
The bullpen did a tremendous job as Rob Zastryzny and Alex Claudo each tossed two shutout innings.
Worcester jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the second inning after Johan Mieses brought home a run with a groundout to third.
Khalil Lee tied the game with a RBI single to center in the second.
Jarren Duran put the Red Sox back on top in the third with a RBI single to right.
In the eighth, Nick Plummer crushed a three-run home run over the right-field wall to give Syracuse a 4-2 lead and eventually the win.
Everyone in the Mets starting lineup had at least a hit except for Daniel Palka and Nick Dini.
Syracuse will get the day off on Monday before they begin a six-game series with the Rochester Red Wings on Tuesday night at Frontier Field.
