PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) -- Michael Chavis hit a solo home run in the sixth inning, leading the Pawtucket Red Sox to a 5-4 win over the Syracuse Mets on Sunday.
The home run by Chavis, part of a three-run inning, gave the Red Sox a 3-2 lead before Josh Ockimey hit a two-run home run later in the inning.
Syracuse answered in the next half-inning when Carlos Gomez hit a two-run home run to cut the deficit to one.
Dan Runzler (1-0) got the win in relief while Tyler Bashlor (0-1) took the loss in the International League game.
In the losing effort, the Mets recorded a season-high six extra base hits. Gomez homered and doubled, scoring a pair of runs while also driving home a couple for the Mets.
