A sunny Father’s Day was conducive to a good baseball game being played, but the result was far from good for the Buffalo Bisons as they fell by a 7-4 score to the Syracuse Mets on Sunday afternoon at Sahlen Field.

Buffalo got on the board first on a sacrifice fly by Davis Schneider to score Otto Lopez in the bottom of the second inning, but Ronny Mauricio drove in a run from third base and Luke Voit grabbed a two-RBI double to go up 3-1 in the third inning. Then Luis De Los Santos drove home two runs on a base hit to tie the game at three for the Herd, and the score would remain that way until the seventh.

With Wes Parsons having exited the game after just three innings and Hagen Danner allowing no runs on two innings in relief, Jimmy Burnette entered the outing and guided Buffalo through a scoreless frame. Then the Bisons’ wheels fell off in the seventh.

An RBI single by Danny Mendick and a base hit RBI by Ronny Mauricio off Burnette gave Syracuse a 5-3 lead, and after Burnette was lifted for Hayden Juenger the scoring continued in the eighth stanza of play. Carlos Cortes scored Jonathan Arauz on a sac fly off Juenger and Nick Meyer singled on a line drive while scoring Jaylin Davis.

Jordan Luplow completed the scoring for Buffalo with his fourth home run of the season in the bottom of the eighth to rightfield and Dennis Santana earned the save for the Mets in the ninth. Stephen Ridings picked up the win for Syracuse.

Buffalo falls to 31-38 and will travel to Scranton, Pennsylvania for a six-game series against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders starting on Tuesday.
