Last week the Worcester Red Sox took a trip west to Syracuse to take on the last place Mets at NBT Bank Stadium, and while the Mets are still at the bottom of the International League East standings they knocked the WooSox down a couple spots by nearly sweeping Worcester, winning five of the six games against the Sox.
