The Syracuse Mets bounced back with a 4-1 victory over the Omaha Storm Chasers on Sunday afternoon at NBT Bank Stadium. With the victory, the two teams split the six-game series.
David Peterson started for Syracuse and tossed four innings of one-run ball while walking two and striking out seven.
The Mets bullpen was outstanding as Trey Cobb, Trevor May, Thomas Szapucki, and Bryce Montes de Oca all had scoreless appearances.
Syracuse plated three of their four runs in the bottom of the first inning. Francisco Alvarez crushed a two-run home run over the center-field wall to make it 2-0. That was his third long ball of the season. Later in the inning, Gosuke Katoh drove in a run with an infield single.
Dairon Blanco put the Storm Chasers on the board in the top of the fourth with an RBI triple.
The Mets added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth as Deven Marrero collected an RBI with a groundout.
Syracuse will get the day off on Monday before they begin a six-game series with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs on Tuesday in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The first pitch is slated for 11:35 a.m.
