Umpire's view of out-of-order gaffe that shamed the Mets

Umpire's view of out-of-order gaffe that shamed the Mets

The New York Mets appear to be a mess. They've been blanked three times during the slump and held to two runs or less four other times.

When was the last time you saw a baseball team bat out-of-order? When No. 3 hitter Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-out double, the fun began.

The Reds, who entered Wednesday's game with the National League's worst record at 9-27, took two of three from NY to win their first series of the season.

The incident happened in the top of the first inning due to a discrepancy in the lineup cards the Mets had in their dugout and the one they turned over to the umpires while facing the Reds in Cincinnati.

Plate umpire Gabe Morales called an out, nullifying the double and ending the threat. Per the rules, that means the next batter - Jay Bruce - was automatically called out, with the scoring being groundout to catcher.

Jay Bruce, who had already made his way to the batters' box to hit fourth for the Mets, accounted for the third out without facing a pitch as Cabrera's double stood in the scorebook.

ANGELS 8, ROCKIES 0: Rene Rivera homered with a sore right hand, Jaime Barria threw efficiently into the sixth and visiting Los Angeles ended Colorado's six-game winning streak.

Why was poor Bruce the victim despite batting in his correct spot? He pinch hit in the 10th and grounded out. He's in Los Angeles and will join the team for the start of a series Thursday against the Dodgers.

To lay out the scene in greater detail, the Mets opened the game in Cincinnati with back-to-back strikeouts by Brandon Nimmo and Wilmer Flores.

So, the first inning starts.

They just got underway against the Cincinnati Reds this afternoon.
