NEW YORK — For the sixth time this season, the Mets did not play a scheduled baseball game.
Thursday’s game against the Phillies was postponed due to rain, which washed over the tri-state area throughout the morning hours. About a half hour before the game’s scheduled 12:10 p.m. ET first pitch, the rain grew heavier. The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader beginning at 4:10 p.m. ET on June 25.
Due to weather and COVID-19-related postponements, the Mets have played just eight games in 15 days this season.
The weather isn’t expected to improve this weekend for the Mets, who are set to open a three-game set in Colorado beginning Friday. Temperatures for Friday and Saturday could dip into the 20s, with some snow in the forecast.
