The Syracuse Mets fell to the Worcester Red Sox, 7-5, in 11 innings on Saturday evening at Polar Park.
Syracuse jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the third on Travis Jankowski’s run-scoring single. However, the lead did not last long as Worcester plated four runs in the bottom of the fourth to grab a 4-1 lead.
In the top of the sixth, Gosuke Katoh crushed a three-run home run over the right-field wall to tie the game at 4-4. His ninth long ball of the season ended up sending the game into extra innings.
Jake Mangum put the Mets back on top in the top of the 10th with an RBI double, but, once again, the lead did not last as Worcester knotted the game in the bottom of the inning to keep the game going.
After Syracuse failed to score in the top of the 11th, Deivy Grullon smacked a walk-off two-run homer off Sam Clay to give the Red Sox the victory.
Connor Grey allowed four runs on nine hits over 3 2/3 innings of work for the Mets.
Syracuse will try to bounce back and secure a series win on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. in the final road game of the 2022 season.
