Duvall's walk-off in 10th gives Reds series win over Mets

Duvall's walk-off in 10th gives Reds series win over Mets

The Mets batted out of order Wednesday, a freakish occurrence better suited for a beer softball league than the major leagues.

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

As Jay Bruce, the announced cleanup hitter, came to the plate, Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman came out of the dugout and alerted plate umpire Gabe Morales to the lineup card the Mets had turned in. However, the Mets meant to have Flores in the two-hole with Cabrera behind him, which is the order the two went to the plate in the first inning.

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.

Cabrera doubled. The double counts!

The Mets gave everyone the lineup they wanted to use - the lineup with Flores second and Cabrera third - except the umpires, who are the only guys who matter.

The India Meteorological Department has issued a five-day weather warning, with light to moderate rainfall in the northern states. They're also asked to not use electrical appliances during the storm, and stay indoors during the storm.

The important part: Wilmer Flores is hitting second and Asdrubal Cabrera is hitting third. Still, first-year manage Mickey Callaway has some explaining to do.

"What was put in the computer was wrong", he said.

The New York Mets got off to an embarrassing start on Wednesday against the Mets, batting out of order and costing themselves a runner in scoring position.

And the Cincinnati Reds were quick to respond with a jest on Twitter.

Even the Reds' official Twitter took a jab at the Mets.
