After the Dodgers took the lead, Mets relief pitcher Jorge Lopez argued that a check swing was called a ball, and third base umpire Ramon de Jesus ejected Lopez.

As Lopez left the field, he took off his uniform and the right-hander threw his glove over the protective netting and into the stands, giving each fan a souvenir.

Speaking after the match, manager Carlos Mendoza said the move was “unacceptable” and that the issue would be dealt with “internally.”

In a move in response, he has been earmarked for reassignment, according to multiple reports.

After Mendoza made his remarks, Lopez called the Mets “the worst team in the entire MLB,” a comment that was also deemed “unacceptable.” According to SNY.

The right-hander was asked if he regretted throwing up his glove and his answer was very candid.

“No, I have no regrets,” he said.

Then he destroyed his own troops.

“I think we were the worst team in the entire MLB. Whatever happens, happens. I really didn’t want to do it… If they want me to be here, then I’m here.”

Well, it looks like he’s not there.

SNY reporter Steve Gelbs He said he gave Lopez a chance to “clarify” his feelings, but Lopez said exactly what he wanted to say.

Ohtani’s homer was the final of a six-run Dodgers run in the eighth inning that came with the score tied at 3-3.

The Mets have blown countless late leads and suffered disappointing losses this month. It’s not just the number of losses that’s the issue, it’s how they happened. Add this one to the list.

It was already a bad day for the Mets: Edwin Diaz was on the disabled list with a shoulder contusion, and Pete Alonso left the game after being hit in the hand by a pitch in the bottom of the first inning.

Their schedule isn’t getting any easier, as they host the defending National League champion Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend.
