Mets undercut 1st-inning rally by batting out of order

Playing an early-afternoon game in Cincinnati, the New York Mets seemed to have something going in the first inning when Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-out ground-rule double. But Flores and Cabrera batted in the opposite order. Cabrera was credited with the double in the official ruling before it was taken away by the official scorer.

Cincinnati manager Jim Riggleman pointed out the mistake to home-plate umpire Gabe Morales, which resulted in an automatic out to end the inning and kill the rally in the most Mets way imaginable. In the lineup released to the public, the Mets had Cabrera hitting third after Wilmer Flores, which is how they batted in the first.

The Reds went on to defeat the Mets, 2-1, on a 10th-inning home run by Adam Duvall.

Crucially though, four of the five starting pitchers now in the Reds' rotation are aged 25 and younger, and in all likelihood, the reason they are starting games is that the franchise wants to see what they can do at the Major League level. "It's been a long time - 32 years", the umpire said.

It was a messed up, embarrassing moment, no doubt, but batting out of order is the least of this team's concerns right now.
