The Syracuse Mets came back from a seven-run deficit and led multiple times but fell to the Buffalo Bisons, 12-11, in eleven innings on Saturday afternoon at Sahlen Field.
The Mets were no-hit through 6.2 innings and trailed by seven runs before exploding for nine unanswered runs between the seventh and eighth innings. Despite a 9-7 lead after the top of the eighth inning and an 11-9 lead after the top of the tenth, Buffalo won on a walk-off error in the 11th.
Nick Dini, Manny Rodriguez, and Tzu-Wei Lin homered in the loss and each had three RBIs.
Veteran left-hander Mike Montgomery made the start for Syracuse and did not make it out of the first inning. He recorded just one out and allowed four runs while the Mets bullpen combined to allow eight.
The two teams will wrap up the six-game series on Sunday afternoon. The first pitch is slated for 1:05 p.m.
