Twitter hammers Mets for batting out of order in first inning

The New York Mets are struggling to keep pace with their National League East rivals these days, but a monumental blunder Wednesday isn’t going to help with any of that.

In the first inning of their game against the road game against the Cincinnati Reds, the Mets batted out of order. The faux pas cost the team a runner in scoring position, adding insult to injury.

Needless to say, Mets fans and analysts had plenty to say about all this.

But there’s at least some good news…we hope. The Mets have nowhere to go but up for the rest of the game, right?
