GENEVA — Things looked good for the Geneva Red Wings through the middle of their New York Collegiate Baseball League playoff game against the Syracuse Salt Cats Sunday.

The Salt Cats had the last word at McDonough Park, though. Syracuse scored seven times in the last three innings to surprise Geneva 8-5 in the first of a three-game series.

The Red Wings (30-17) turned around a 1-0 deficit with five runs spanning the fourth, fifth and sixth frames. Chris Burns put the home club ahead with a two-run double in the fourth while Cameron Coons drove in another run with a two-sacker.

John Cruz’s sacrifice fly in the fifth and Burns’ solo homer in the sixth gave Geneva a 5-1 lead.

The Salt Cats clawed their way back with three runs in the seventh, capped by Tom Nagy’s two-run double.

Syracuse tied the game with a run in the eighth, then erupted for three more in the ninth. Erik Poldroo put his team up for good with a base hit. Two runs scored on the play, aided by one of Geneva’s five errors.

Julio Nunez doubled and singled twice for the Red Wings.
