The Lehigh Valley IronPigs dropped their first game of the season to Syracuse by an 11-2 final Thursday night at home.

Tyler Cloyd was not sharp in his first start of the year, allowing a 1st inning run then seeing the flood gates open in the third when the Chiefs got an RBI double from Josh Brown and home runs from Micah Owings and Zach Walters as Syracuse eventually won 11-2.
