Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (75-66)

SCRANTON WILKES-BARRE 14, SYRACUSE 13 (BOX)

The Syracuse Mets finished the season tied with the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders for first place in the International League North Division. The two teams played a one-game playoff to determine the division champions yesterday on the road in Moosic, PA. Syracuse came out of the gate strong, scoring five runs in the top of the first inning. The Mets added a sixth run in the top of the third inning on a solo-shot from Gregor Blanco. The RailRiders scored a run off of Ervin Santana in the bottom of the fourth inning, but Syracuse added a seventh insurance run on an RBI double from Jason Krizan in the top of the seventh. Santana managed to get through six innings without allowing any additional damage, but fell apart after coming back out for the seventh. He allowed four runs to score without recording an out, and Nick Rumbelow allowed a fifth run to score later in the inning, cutting the Syracuse lead to 7-6.

Syracuse immediately got to work on extending their lead in the following half inning. Braxton Lee, Ali Sanchez, and Gregor Blanco hit back to back to back singles to open the inning, and all later came around to score. Jason Krizan and Ruben Tejada hit doubles later in the inning, and Syracuse ended the inning with a 13-6 lead heading into the bottom of the eighth. The Mets tasked their bullpen with holding a seven run lead, and their bullpen proved not to be up to the task. Stephen Nogosek gave up a solo homer to Scranton’s Kyle Higashioka to open the inning, and gave up four total runs in the inning. Brooks Pounders came in to relieve Nogosek, and combined with Eric Hanhold to give up the remainder of the Syracuse lead. Hanhold allowed a double to Scranton’s Erik Kratz that scored two with two outs in the inning, having seen his team’s 13-6 lead transform into a 14-13 deficit. The Syracuse Mets went down in order in the top of the ninth, and ultimately lost the one-game playoff 14-13.

ROSTER ALERT: Right-handed pitcher Ervin Santana has been assigned to the Syracuse Mets from the St. Lucie Mets.
