Mets and Marlins rained out tonight, will play a single-admission doubleheader in September

Harvey Day has been postponed, and the game will be made up in September.

For the second consecutive night, weather has interfered with a Mets game. Tonight's contest between the Mets and Marlins at Citi Field has been postponed by rain. It's the sixth time this season a Mets' game has been postponed by weather. For comparison's sake, only two Mets games were postponed by weather last season.

The game has been rescheduled as a part of a single-admission doubleheader on Saturday, September 14, with the first game starting at 4:10 pm. People with tickets for tonight's game can exchange them for tickets to the doubleheader or any other Mets home game this season.

Presumably, Matt Harvey and Jose Fernandez will be pushed to tomorrow's game, while Shaun Marcum and Kevin Slowey will likely pitch Sunday's contest. It's unclear if the Mets will alter their rotation from there, as they had intended to have uber-prospect Zack Wheeler make his Major League debut next Friday against the Chicago Cubs.
