WooSox Rewind: Worcester stumbles in final homestand, in danger of finishing season under .500

The Worcester Red Sox took on the Syracuse Mets last week at Polar Park with nothing on the line but pride, and managed to go just 2-4 for the week. They start a three-game series in Rochester with a 73-73 record, so they’ll need two wins to avoid finishing the 2022 season under .500.
