It’s bad. It’s as bad at can possibly get.

After apologizing for not running one out on a double-play ball in Miami while simultaneously blaming the scoreboard operator, New York Mets second baseman Robinson Cano put up an amazing repeat performance on Sunday.

Two days ago, Cano found himself slammed for not running hard enough. On Sunday, he didn’t run at all in the Mets 3-0 loss to the Miami Marlins, the team’s fifth straight defeat.

The outrageous moment came in the top of the fourth inning with J.D. Davis on first base and one out. The top-chopped ball slowly rolled down the right-field line as Cano just stood there only to quickly argue with the umpire after it was called fair.

There was no reason to argue. It was a clear fair ball.

The pitcher in the scenario was Marlins righty Sandy Alcantara, who hurled a gem. He relented no runs on just two hits and a walk while striking out eight batters in a complete-game shutout.

Davis was the only Met to collect a hit on the day. He did it twice, with one going by the wayside after Cano failed to run to first.

Noah Syndergaard pitched well for New York. He surrendered just two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five in seven innings of work. Seth Lugo, who worked the eighth, gave up the final run, a Curtis Granderson solo shot.

Former Met Neil Walker paced the Fish with two hits on the afternoon.

Next up for the New York Mets will be the Washington Nationals in Flushing. A four-game slate will commence on Monday night.
