Mets and Diamondbacks rained out on Friday night

Jim McIsaac

The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Sunday.

Poor Aaron Hill. The two-run home run he hit in the second inning of tonight's Diamondbacks vs. Mets game off of Bartolo Colon is not going to count. The ballgame was delayed by rain starting in the fourth inning, and the wet stuff kept coming and coming. At around 10:30 p.m., the umpires ruled that since we had not yet passed the top of the fifth inning, the game would have to be postponed.

Since this is Arizona's only trip to Queens in 2014, the teams will make up the game as part of a straight doubleheader on Sunday starting at 1:10 p.m. This at least means that Banner Day will once again take place during a doubleheader, just like it did during the good ole days.

While Rafael Montero will start the first game on Sunday as scheduled, the second game will be started by none other than Daisuke Matsuzaka. He's been working out of the bullpen for most of the season, but Dan Warthen is confident that the right-hander can throw at least 100 pitches on Sunday. That should be plenty, lest the afternoon affair turn into an all-nighter.

Per MLB rules, the Mets also have the option of calling up a 26th player to their major league roster on Sunday, but because Matsuzaka is already here, we don't know who the extra player will be yet.

The Mets are back in action against the Diamondbacks on Saturday at 4:10 p.m. Zack Wheeler is scheduled to start against Josh Collmenter.
