Mets Bat Out Of Order Against Reds

Jay Bruce Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

Besides the fact he is a solid starter when he is on his game, how does former New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey fit in the Cincinnati Reds plans?

"I don't know", Wheeler said.

Harvey had a breakout season in 2013, being selected to play in his first Major League Baseball All-Star Game. But in the handwritten lineup card presented to umpires, Cabrera was batting second, followed by Flores.

Well, as it turns out, the Mets were caught batting out of order, apparently because they turned in the wrong lineup card.

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. The official scorecard, however, flipped the names.




The Reds won a pitching-dominated game and took two of three from the Mets, only their second series win of the season. Of course, I can also point to previous year when, on this date, the Mets were 16-16 and I was trying to convince myself things could turn around.

"What happens is, you find the proper batter". Wilmer Flores hit a solo homer in the sixth - the ball bounced off the yellow padding atop the left field wall. It doesn't benefit the Reds to say anything. Cabrera is credited with the hit. His last outing was a two-inning, five-run relief appearance for the Mets on Thursday vs. the Braves, and he was designated for assignment the following day after refusing to go to the Minors.

NY also placed Todd Frazier on the 10-day disabled list, due to a left hamstring strain. And, while not actually a case of a batter hitting out of turn, Chris Young of the Boston Red Sox hit after he officially had been taken out of the lineup during a blowout loss to the Baltimore Orioles just past year. Cabrera was supposed to hit second in the inning rather than third, and the inning abruptly ended when Cincinnati manager Jim Riggleman brought this to the umpires' attention.
