The New York Mets definitely miss Francisco Lindor after watching Luis Guillorme record three errors during Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.
The New York Mets faced a heavy hand during last weekend’s series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, as starting shortstop Francisco Lindor suffered an oblique injury on Friday. He was later placed on the 10-day disabled list with what was diagnosed as a Grade 2 oblique strain. The Mets then decided to replace Lindor in the starting lineup with infielder Luis Guillorme.
It didn’t go well, especially if you watched Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds. During the bottom of the second inning, Guillorme fielded a hit off Tyler Stephenson’s infield but moved the ball as he tried to throw it to third base. Then, Guillorme slipped while trying to get the ball to third, only to throw it out of play. That allowed Jonathan India to score and extend Cincinnati’s lead to 5-3.
Mets: Luis Guillorme records three errors during Monday’s game against Reds
Guillorme was evaluated for a fielding and pitching error on that play, effectively allowing a run to score. But those were his second and third mistakes of the day. His first error occurred early in the game, when he missed a blow from Stephenson and allowed India to score.
To make matters worse for Mets fans, this comedy of errors comes a day after pitcher Taijuan Walker’s mistake that led to the Pirates scoring three runs in the first inning of Sunday’s game. However, what eased the pain was that the Mets came back from a 0-6 deficit to win 7-6.
Mets fans hope the team can pull off another miraculous victory to help forget about the mistakes Guillorme made.
