Due to rain, the Mets confirmed that the game on Monday will be rescheduled.

Mother Nature has made it difficult to postpone or cancel Monday’s game between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals at Citi Field.

Mets Public Relations:

The New York Mets have announced that tonight’s game against the Washington Nationals has been postponed due to rain. It will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader tomorrow, Tuesday, October 4 beginning at 4:10 p.m. Gates will open at 2:10 p.m. and parking lots will open at 1:10 p.m. Game two will begin approximately 30-40 minutes after the conclusion of game one.

The National Weather Service has issued the forecast below.

  • Today:

Before 11 a.m., showers are possible. A high of around 60 degrees is expected. Winds from the northeast at 17 to 20 miles per hour.

  • Tonight:

There is a 20% chance of showers after 2 a.m. A low of 50 degrees is predicted. Winds are blowing from the northeast at 16 mph.

On Monday, the Mets and Nationals will play the first of three games.

The Yankees are coming off a weekend loss to the Braves, who swept their three-game series at Truist Park.

They did it in style, defeating the Mets’ top starters on three consecutive days: Jacob deGrom on Friday, Max Scherzer on Saturday, and Chris Bassitt on Sunday.

As a result, the Braves have taken over first place in the National League East. Atlanta leads by two games with three regular-season games remaining.

The Braves won five of the last six games of their series against the Mets, outscoring them 42-19.

New York had a 12-game lead on June 1 but is now the team with the lowest standings this season.

If the Braves win or the Mets lose, the defending World Series champions will win their fifth straight division title.
