Saturday was a beautiful day for baseball at Polar Park. Sadly though, it wasn’t all that great of a game for the Worcester Red Sox who lost 5-4, to the Syracuse Mets.
Syracuse got this game rolling early with Springfield native, Patrick Mazeika, at the top of the first hitting his 6th homer of the season and getting an RBI (Mark Payton and Wilfredo Tovar) to make it a 3-0, Syracuse lead.
At the top of the fourth, both Chance Sisco and Cheslor Cuthbert scoring to make it a 5-0, Syracuse lead.
Worcester went seven scoreless innings before finally making something happen in the bottom of the eight. With bases loaded, Joey Meneses hit his first grand slam and had three RBI (Jhonny Pereda, Ryan Fitzgerald and Yairo Munoz) to make it a 5-4, Syracuse lead.
Just a day after Yairo Munoz extended his hitting streak to 34 straight games which tied the all-time Red Sox organizational record for longest hitting streak with the great Dom DiMaggio, Munoz on Saturday extend his hitting streak to 35 straight games, a new all-time Red Sox organizational record for longest hitting streak.
