Syracuse second baseman Luisangel Acuña continued his hot stretch last night, going 2-for-5 from the plate with an RBI. He extended his current hitting streak to six games.

Shortstop José Iglesias has been a solid addition to Syracuse’s roster this season. The former MLB All-Star has gone 5-for-11 in the series thus far, improving his .288 season batting average.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre will send out right-handed pitcher Baron Stuart to start the first game. The 24-year-old from Florida will be making his Triple-A debut after being officially promoted today. Left-handed pitcher Tanner Tully is slated to start the second game.

The Mets are yet to release their starting pitchers.

Syracuse currently leads the season series with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, 4-3. Game 1 of the double-header begins at 5:05 p.m., Game 2 will follow shortly after.
