The Syracuse Mets offense went cold in a 4-2 loss to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on Saturday evening at NBT Bank Stadium.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (4-1) scored on the first pitch of the game. Luke Voit led off the game with a home run to left-center field for a 1-0 RailRiders lead. Later in the inning, with the bases loaded and one out, Kyle Holder worked a walk to bring home another run and make it a 2-0 game.

Syracuse (1-4) got its first run in the bottom of the second inning. Brandon Drury led off with a long homer over the left-center-field wall for his first home run of the season, cutting the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre lead to one, 2-1.

The RailRiders extended their advantage in the fourth. Derek Dietrich led off the frame with a home run, giving Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a 3-1 edge.

The score remained 3-1 until the ninth. In the top of the ninth, Trey Amburgey notched a pinch-hit RBI single to give the RailRiders an insurance run for a 4-1 lead.

Syracuse brought the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the ninth. With one out, Khalil Lee doubled. Deivy Grullon then singled and was pinch-ran for by Mason Williams. A Quinn Brodey groundout scored Lee from third base and moved Williams to second as the Mets made it a 4-2 ballgame. Martin Cervenka came to the plate representing the tying run, but he struck out to end the game.

The Mets and RailRiders conclude their six-game series on Sunday afternoon. Right-hander Jerad Eickhoff is set to take the mound for Syracuse while left-hander Mike Montgomery will pitch for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m.
