Mets-Twins postponed today, will be made up on August 19

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets and Twins made it through two cold games, but today's game has been postponed.

The Mets won't have a chance to sweep the Twins this afternoon after all. Although the teams played through a couple of cold games on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, precipitation in Minneapolis today proved to be too big a hurdle for a baseball game. The postponement came four hours before the game was scheduled to begin.

The game will be made up on Monday, August 19, after the Mets complete a ten-game west coast road trip to Arizona, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The Mets return to Queens on August 20 for one of those ridiculous two-game "series" against the Braves. In total, the Mets will play games on sixteen straight days from August 6 through 21, but they get a day off on August 22 before hosting the Tigers that weekend.

The Mets are scheduled to play seven straight games with a four-game series against the Rockies in Denver slated to begin tomorrow night. The forecast in Denver calls for plenty of cold and snow, too, so the Mets' luck with weather on this road trip might not get much better.

With the cancellation, the Mets have announced their rotation for the series in Colorado:

That sets up Matt Harvey for a Friday night showdown with Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals at Citi Field — Denver weather permitting, of course.
