Mets Loss To Reds Is "Out of Order" - 2-1 In 10 innings

posted by Ray Martel -

  • The Mets first inning was one of the strangest of this young season. After Asdrubal Cabrera doubled, Reds Manager Jim Riggleman approached the plate and alerted the umps that the Mets had batted out of order. An embarrassing scene that took the hit away from Cabrera and meant that Jay Bruce who didn’t even get to swing, was out!
  • Mets manufactured a run in the third when Asdrubal Cabrera hit an RBI Ground out and it was 1-0 Mets
  • Zack Wheeler pitched his best start of the season, blanking the Reds through the first five innings.
  • Wheeler gave up his only run of the game in the 6th, but battled back to strike out Cruz to leave the bases loaded.
  • 6 innings, one run and seven strikeouts for Zack Wheeler, but he wouldn’t be involved with the final outcome.
  • Mets and Cincy couldn’t muster a run through 9 full and we were off to extras as some rain fell and gave the game an ominous feeling.
  • Bottom 10, Reds Adam Duvall hit a no out solo home run of off AJ Ramos and the Mets lost the game and the series as well 2-1.
  • The talk after the game was all about how the first inning blunder may well have cost the Mets the game in the long run.
  • Mets are off on Thursday as they fly off to Philadelphia to start a three game series on Friday Night against the Phillies, First pitch 7:05, Mets on Deck 6:05
