Connor Grey started for Syracuse and allowed three runs on five hits over 2 2/3 innings while walking one and striking out two.
Dominic Smith and Khalil Lee homered for the Mets, while Patrick Mazeika collected a pair of RBIs. Daniel Palka and J.T. Riddle also chipped in with RBIs. Four players had two-hit games, and everyone in the starting lineup had at least a hit except for Travis Jankowski.
Syracuse will try to bounce back on Thursday with José Butto on the mound. The first pitch is slated for 7:05 p.m.
