The Rochester Red Wings (37-30) opened a six-game series with the Syracuse Mets (26-40) on Tuesday night at Frontier Field. Syracuse rallied and came out victorious by a score of 3-2.
Rochester jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the first inning on Joey Meneses’ RBI single.
Syracuse plated its first run of the game in the sixth and tied it up on Khalil Lee’s RBI double. However, the game was not tied for long as Jake Noll put the Red Wings back on top in the bottom half of the frame with a run-scoring double.
In the seventh, Quinn Brodey smacked a two-run home run to give the Mets their first lead of the game. That ended up being the difference in the game as Syracuse’s pitching shut down Rochester over the final three innings.
Travis Blankenhorn had a multi-hit game for the Mets and Andrew Stevenson collected two hits for the Red Wings.
Logan Verrett started on the mound for the Rochester and he surrendered a run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings while walking one and striking out six. Thomas Szapucki started on the hill for the Mets and allowed a run on three hits over five innings while walking two and registering five strikeouts.
The Red Wings have now dropped three straight.
The second game of the week-long series is slated for Wednesday at 1:05 p.m.
