The Mets’ struggles have descended beyond mere hitting slumps and pitching slumps at this point, even beyond simple wins and losses. A sliver of the absurd played into their undoing Wednesday, when the Mets batted out of order en route to a 2-1, 10th-inning loss to the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

They fell Wednesday when outfielder Adam Duvall greeted AJ Ramos with a leadoff homer in the 10th to give the Reds a walk-off victory.
