Syracuse Mets fall short in rain-shortened game at Worcester

The Syracuse Mets dropped the series opener to the Worcester Red Sox, 3-2, on Tuesday night at Polar Park in a rain-shortened six-inning game.

Francisco Alvarez stayed red hot at the plate as he crushed a two-run home run in the top of the fifth to put the Mets on the board and make it a one-run game. That was his ninth long ball of the season. Alvarez collected three of the team’s eight hits.

Jordan Yamamoto started on the mound and allowed three runs on five hits over three innings while walking two and striking out three. Alex Claudio surrendered a run in relief of Yamamoto. Bryce Montes de Oca tossed a scoreless frame before the game went into a rain delay.

The second game of this six-game series will take place on Wednesday at 6:45 p.m.
