(Seemingly wrong) order of moderated posts by same user

Two of a new user’s posts were held for moderation.

I approved the second, later one before approving the first, earlier one. (The second one appeared at the top of the screen and I didn’t read the first one until later.)

What I expected - the posts would appear in the topic in the order that they were submitted.

What happened - the two posts appear out of order (ie in the order that they were approved).

Is there any way of reordering these two posts?
