Mets Caught Batting Out Of Order, Apparently Turned In Wrong Lineup Card

The Reds consider Matt Harvey a starting pitcher, their general manager Dick Williams said.

The New York Mets contributed to their own downfall Wednesday afternoon, sabotaging a first-inning rally by batting out of order in the top of the first inning against the Cincinnati Reds. "It probably cost us a game".

Well, as it turns out, the Mets were caught batting out of order, apparently because they turned in the wrong lineup card. However, you and I know that the lineup's problem isn't where guys are hitting, it's who is hitting. or, I should say, who isn't hitting. The time is now for the 29-year-old to reinvent himself but given the state of the Reds, not to mention Harvey himself, this move could wind up doing more harm than good.

Following the first inning screw up, the lineup reverts back to the official batting order, so Cabrera bats second and Flores third.

The Mets designated Harvey for assignment on May 4 after he refused a request from the Mets to go to the minors.

It's hard to believe the Mets were once 11-1, but that is a fading memory at this point. He pinch hit in the 10th and grounded out.

Reds: Open a four-game series against the Dodgers, who have won their last eight games against Cincinnati and 17 of the last 20. "Already in Los Angeles working out, Harvey will meet the team at Dodger Stadium on Thursday".

Reds: There's no set plan for when Harvey will pitch or whether he'll be used as a starter or reliever initially.

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. Worse, Mickey Callaway's beleaguered and banged up squad scored just three runs during the 24 innings played in Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park, which is notorious for being a big-time hitters park.

Harvey was 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA in 2018, coming off a 5-7, 6.70 ERA campaign in 2017.
