Mets, Reds Close Series after Harvey Trade
 
:ap:
 
CINCINNATI, OH -- The New York Mets hope to depart Cincinnati on Wednesday with a much-needed series victory, but even if they do, they'll be leaving behind a bit of franchise history.

For former Mets ace Matt Harvey, New York is officially in his past, and Cincinnati is his immediate future.

Prior to their 7-2 loss Tuesday at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday, the Mets traded Harvey, who refused a minor league assignment last week, to the Reds for former starting catcher Devin Mesoraco and cash. The Reds envision Harvey joining them later this week in Los Angeles, where they start a four-game series against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Before that happens, the teams close out their three-game series Wednesday afternoon with right-handers Zack Wheeler (2-2, 5.79 ERA) of the Mets and Sal Romano (2-3, 4.21 ERA) of the Reds opposing each other. The Mets won 7-6 on Monday after going through a winless six-game homestand, only to lose their seventh in eight games on Tuesday as Eugenio Suarez doubled among his three hits and drove in four runs.

"I feel good at the plate. I'm not trying to do too much, just put the ball in play," said Suarez, who has five multi-hit games since coming off the disabled list April 26. "I'm trying to find a ball in the strike zone and put a good swing on it."

The Reds also got a strong start from Luis Castillo (2-4), who struck out seven and walked one while giving up two runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings. But starting pitcher is a big issue for a team with a 9-27 record -- as evidenced by top starting pitcher Homer Bailey (0-5), who is winless in eight starts. The rest of the rotation is made up of promising but unproven young pitchers.

Hence the Reds' acquisition of the 29-year-old Harvey, a former All-Star who was 13-8 in 2015 but is 9-19 since. He is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA this season and was recently demoted to the bullpen before being designated for assignment -- all this following seasons in which his ERA was 4.86 (2016) and 6.70 (2017).

Harvey last started April 19, but Reds general manager Dick Williams envisions him moving into the rotation shortly after he joins the team.

"Suffice to say that (the Reds) were optimistic that there were things we could tweak," Williams said. "Certainly it's not like his stuff has disappeared. There is stuff there. The velocity's been good and we really like the changeup. It may be more of a pitch mix and approach than a big mechanical change, I think is what we are looking at."

Mesoraco, like Harvey, will be looking for a fresh start with a new team. The Reds thought enough of him to give him a $28 million, four-year contract in 2015, following a 25-homer season in 2014, but multiple injuries and the emergence of new starting catcher Tucker Barnhart limited him to 316 plate appearances the last four seasons.

The Mets' top two catchers, Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki, are both injured.

"It's just another quality guy to bring into the clubhouse, and help us at a position that we've been struggling a little bit with since the injuries," said J.P. Ricciardi, the Mets special assistant to the general manager.

Mesoraco struck out as a pinch hitter with a man on base in the ninth inning of his Mets debut Tuesday.

Wheeler and Romano will oppose each other having little experience against the team they're facing. Wheeler hasn't opposed the Reds since beating them 4-3 on Sept. 7, 2014, while Romano is 1-0 with a 4.09 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 11 innings over two previous starts against the Mets.

Wheeler's last start was a poor one -- he gave up eight runs and 10 hits, including two homers, in six innings of an 8-7 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Friday. The same night, Romano allowed one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings of a 4-1 Reds win over the Miami Marlins. On Wednesday, he'll try to give the Reds only their second multi-game series win all season.

The Mets were 32-14 at Great American Ball Park before losing Tuesday -- only the fifth win there by the Reds in 20 home games this season. The Mets are 11-6 on the road.

Mets Bat Out of Turn, Reds Rally for 2-1 Win in 10th

:nbcsports: :ap:
 
by JOE KAY

CINCINNATI, OH -- First-year manager Mickey Callaway knew something was badly wrong when Wilmer Flores went to the plate for the first time. At that point, it was too late to change the Mets' mistake.

 

New York wasted a first-inning rally by batting out of turn, and Adam Duvall led off the 10th inning with a homer that sent the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory Wednesday, concluding a series that will be remembered for an unexpected traded and an embarrassing mistake.

 

This one simply wasn't in the lineup cards for New York.

 

"It is frustrating," said Callaway, who blamed himself for an administrative mistake. "It probably cost us a game. We had a chance to score in the first and we didn't."

 

The Reds took advantage. Duvall connected for the first game-ending homer of his career off A.J. Ramos (1-2), sending New York to its eighth loss in nine games. The Mets have scored two runs or less in seven of them, including three shutouts.

The Reds took two of three for only their second series win of the season. They're 10-27, their worst start since the Great Depression. Raisel Iglesias (1-0) retired six straight batters, fanning three.

 

It started with a miscommunication. The Mets handed Callaway's lineup card to the umpires, which had Asdrubal Cabrera batting second and Wilmer Flores third. However, the lineup sent out by computer pregame and posted on the dugout wall incorrectly had the two hitters switched in the order. Callaway did not identify who sent out the incorrect lineup.

 

Callaway knew there was nothing he could do when Flores batted out of turn and struck out for the second out. Cabrera then doubled to left, and the Reds pointed out the discrepancy. The double was nullified and an out was called , credited to Jay Bruce, the next batter.

 

"I felt bad," Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said . "It's so easy to have that happen."

 

Crew chief Jerry Meals had never been involved with a batting-out-of-turn in the majors.

 

"I've seen it in the minor leagues," Meals said. "It's been a long time, 32 years."

 

It was the first time a major league team was caught batting out of turn since the Brewers did it in 2016. The previous time the Mets batted out of order was 1977.

 

Following their correct order the next time through, the Mets got a run in the third when Brandon Nimmo tripled off Sal Romano and scored on Cabrera's groundout.

 

Zack Wheeler had retired 12 straight before the Reds rallied in the sixth to tie it on Joey Votto's single. Wheeler had to wait until the umpires sorted out the batting-out-of-order situation to throw his first pitch.

 

"I don't know," Wheeler said. "Some weird baseball. Unfortunately it happened, but it does happen every once in a while."

 

Catcher Devin Mesoraco started for the Mets and went 0 for 4, a day after the Reds dealt him to New York for pitcher Matt Harvey.

 

SEEN THIS BEFORE

The Reds were on the other end of a batting snafu 10 years earlier at Shea Stadium. They batted out of turn in the ninth inning after a double switch during an 8-3 loss to the Mets on May 11, 2008.

 

NY RAZZING

The Reds had some fun with the Mets' misadventure on their Twitter feed. They retweeted the Mets' pregame post with their starting lineup and commented: "Can someone send this down to the third base dugout?"

 

FREE FALLING

The Mets have lost 16 of 23 following an 11-1 start, falling into fourth place in the NL East.

 

METS MOVE

Infielder Luis Guillorme was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and catcher Tomas Nido was optioned. The 23-year-old Guillorme will make his major league debut.

 

TRAINER'S ROOM

:metsmini: RHP Hansel Robles flew back to New York for an MRI on his right knee, which he twisted Tuesday night while reacting to a bunt. X-rays were negative. ... LF Yoenis Cespedes was out of the starting lineup for a day to rest his sore right thigh. He pinch hit in the 10th and grounded out.

 

:redsmini: There's no set plan for when Harvey will pitch or whether he'll be used as a starter or reliever initially. He's in Los Angeles and will join the team for the start of a series Thursday against the Dodgers.

 

UP NEXT

:metsmini: After a day off, the Mets open a three-game series in Philadelphia behind LHP Steven Matz (1-3), who is coming off his first quality start of the season. He allowed one run on three hits in six innings of a 2-0 loss to the Rockies.

 

:redsmini: Open a four-game series against the Dodgers, who have won their last eight games against Cincinnati and 17 of the last 20. RHP Tyler Mahle (2-4) faces RHP Walker Buehler (2-0).
