Mets Apple appears mid-inning for no reason ...

Citi Field's home run apple is only supposed to make an appearance after a Mets player goes yard.

The big fruit malfunctioned on Monday, however, popping up while the Orioles batted during the first inning and momentarily stopping play.

While we haven't gotten to the core of the issue, our best guess is the Apple was just in a rotten mood.
