WooSox Rewind: Worcester hanging tough as second half begins

The Worcester Red Sox began the second half of their season last week with an abbreviated series against the Syracuse Mets at Polar Park, and still find themselves with striking distance of the top spot in the International League’s East Division.

Syracuse 6, WooSox 5 (10 innings)
LP: Zack Kelly (4-3)
Big hits:
Christin Stewart 4th inning RBI single

What went wrong: Late-game comeback was spoiled by a poor tenth inning.

Saturday
Syracuse 7, WooSox 3
LP: Durbin Feltman (1-5)
Big hits:
