Former New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey sits in the dugout after pitching during the third inning of a baseball game against the Miami Marlins in Miami

The New York Mets finally cut some dead weight yesterday when they dealt struggling right-hander and former ace Matt Harvey to the Cincinnati Reds for injury-prone catcher Devin Mesoraco. Asdrubal Cabrera came up next - following the batting order announced pregame - and doubled to left. Cabrera was credited with the double in the official ruling before it was taken away by the official scorer.

Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman alerted the Mets' error to the home plate umpire, and NY was automatically called for its final out of the inning, which ended with Cabrera in scoring position. Mets manager Mickey Callaway had apparently handed the wrong lineup over to the umpire before the game, listing Wilmer Flores hitting third and Cabrera second. "It probably cost us a game". Cabrera was on-deck to hit second in the inning after Nimmo.

"I've seen it in the minor leagues", Meals said.

Cincinnati's Adam Duvall won the game with a walk-off home run into the left-field seats off NY reliever AJ Ramos with no outs in the bottom of the 10th, sending the Mets to a 16th defeat in 23 games following an 11-1 start.

It was the first time a major league team was caught batting out of turn since the Brewers did it in 2016. They have always found a way to bat in the correct order though.

For what it's worth, the Mets have been giving each of Cabrera and Flores at-bats in the second and third spots all year long.

Even the Reds' Twitter account poked fun at the Mets. They retweeted the Mets' pregame post with their starting lineup and commented: "Can someone send this down to the third base dugout?"

The Mets dropped two of three games in Cincinnati while scoring only ten runs in the series and only three runs in the final two games.

The Mets acquired Devin Mesoraco from the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday in exchange for Matt Harvey, so they made a decision to bring up Luis Guillorme to provide some infield depth while sending Nido to Sin City.
