One might have thought things couldn’t gotten worse for the 13-23 Brewers, but they just did after letting the Mets score 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth during Saturday night’s game. Starter Matt Garza had limited the Mets to just one run — which came on an RBI single from opposing starter Jacob deGrom — over the first three innings.

Here’s how it went down:

  • Michael Cuddyer leadoff single
  • Daniel Murphy walk
  • Eric Campbell 1-3 ground out, moving both runners up a base
  • Kevin Plawecki RBI fielder’s choice, shortstop to catcher (no out recorded) [2-0]
  • Jacob deGrom single to load the bases
  • Wilmer Flores grand slam [6-0]
  • Curtis Granderson infield single
  • Juan Lagares single, moving Granderson to third base
  • Lucas Duda walk
  • Michael Cuddyer two-run double [8-0]
  • (Garza relieved by Brandon Kintzler)
  • Daniel Murphy two-run double [10-0]
  • Eric Campbell RBI single [11-0]
  • Kevin Plawecki strikeout
  • Jacob deGrom single
  • Wilmer Flores ground out

Garza finished having allowed 10 runs on 10 hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings. He entered with a 4.04 ERA and left at 5.72.

With three hits in his first three at-bats, deGrom becomes the first Mets pitcher to do so since Chris Young on April 5, 2011 (via Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News). The last pitcher to record two hits of his own in an inning was Adam Wainwright on April 13, 2013 against the Brewers (via Jesse Spector of the Sporting News).

Apparent roster snafu changes Blue Jays pitching plans

ATLANTA — An apparent roster snafu forced the Toronto Blue Jays to change their pitching plans for Thursday night’s game at the Atlanta Braves.

After Nate Pearson gave up three runs in five innings, manager Charlie Montoyo brought in right-hander Jacob Waguespack to open the sixth.

As Waguespack walked to the mound, he was greeted by home plate umpire Alan Porter, who apparently delivered some bad news: The right-hander wasn’t on the 28-man active roster for the game.

The Blue Jays optioned Waguespack and infielder Santiago Espinal to the team’s alternate training site on Thursday to reach the 28-man roster limit.

Montoyo told reporters before the game Waguespack had been recalled when right-hander Trent Thornton was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation. That move apparently was not processed, leaving Waguespack off the active roster.

Waguespack walked to the dugout and Montoyo brought in Rafael Dolis as the official replacement for Pearson.
