There are a lot of ways to lose a baseball game, and the Mets found possibly the worst route to take on the road to defeat.

They were looking fine headed into the bottom of the ninth inning with the score tied 4-4. Hansel Robles returned to the mound after entering the game in the bottom of the eighth. He got off to a bad start in the ninth by hitting Jonathan Lucroy with a pitch.
Smith has a great chance to be a John Olerud-type first baseman. He plays fantastic defense with a surprising amount of quickness for a first baseman, and he is as pure of a hitter as the Mets have in their system right now. He may be an even better pure hitter than Michael Conforto.
The only true knock on Smith is that he doesn’t have a ton of power. His numbers at Triple-A are misleading. He is hitting .330 with 16 home runs, but Las Vegas and the Pacific Coast League are notorious hitters havens. That being said, his average is not unexpected. He’s just not seen as someone who will hit 30 home runs every year.
Bottom line: The Mets have a future solid-to-above average first baseman on their hands and his debut is just around the corner.
Analysis: The Orioles, who held on to rumored trade target Zach Britton, wound up adding a piece to their roster.
Baltimore adds the 27-year-old Beckham, who was the first overall pick in the 2008 draft. He has played all four infield positions in his career, but he became the Rays’ everyday shortstop this season when Matt Duffy was unable to return from heel surgery. Beckham was batting .259/.314/.407 with 12 home runs in 345 plate appearances through July 30.
