Addressing the postponed opening series between the Mets and the Nationals last week, MLB has announced makeup dates for all three games in June and September.

The Nationals will host the Mets for a split doubleheader on Saturday June 19th, with first pitch for each game scheduled at 1:05 PM and 6:05 PM. The Mets and Nationals were originally scheduled to play that day at 4:05 PM before the announced change.

On what was previously an off-day for both teams, the Mets and Nationals will now play on Monday, June 28th at 7:05 PM. This has the Mets playing in three different cities on three consecutive days, with the team playing in New York against the Phillies on Sunday the 27th, against the Nationals in D.C. on Monday the 28th, and then against the Braves in Atlanta on Tuesday the 29th.

The final game will be made up via a split doubleheader on Saturday, September 4th in D.C. The two games will start at 1:05 PM and 6:05 PM, again adjusting for the originally scheduled 4:05 PM start time. Each game of the scheduled doubleheaders will last for seven innings.
