It’s safe to say that Mother Nature does not want the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets to play at Citi Field.
For the second straight day, rain has forced a postponement. The two teams will make up Sunday’s game on Monday as part of a single-admission doubleheader. Game 1 will begin at 1:10 p.m., and Game 2 will start approximately 30 minutes after the first contest ends.
New York’s pitching plans have not been announced, but it is safe to assume that right-hander Tylor Megill will start one of the games.
The Mets currently sit second in the National League East with a 15-12 record, three games behind the Atlanta Braves, who are 18-9.
