The Cardinals-Mets game has been postponed due to rain; doubleheader on Tuesday – Reading Eagle

It was damp and the sun was shining through the clouds over City Field when the Mets announced that due to severe weather forecasts later in the evening their start of the series against the Cardinals on Monday had been postponed.

The match was postponed as part of the doubleheader on Tuesday, starting at 15:10. The goal at Citi Field will open an hour before the first serve, at 14:10 The second game will start 30-40 minutes after the end of the first game.

“Because of the harsh weather in the area, we think about everyone’s safety, so today’s game has been postponed,” the Mets said in a statement.

The rain, although marked as strong thunderstorms, is expected to leave Flushing by the first Monday at 7:10 p.m. The Mets have not nominated a team official to clarify their decision as a home team to move the game.

Unfortunately, the doubleheader on Tuesday may just work in favor of Amazin, given their suboptimal filing plans.

Taijuan Walker will take the mound on Tuesday on the scheduled start day, and Trevor Williams will get another one of those starts, but as of Monday night the team has not announced the order in which they will perform.

З Tylar Magil (right biceps tendonitis) landing on the injured list, retrospectively by May 12, the Mets needed a point starter on Monday. Right-winger Williams, usually a long-term option to help the team out of the bullpen, was scheduled Monday to make the start of the series against the Cardinals right-handed Miles Nicholas. But Williams was most likely not the Mets ’first choice against the St. Louis team, which finished second 19-15.

This season, the Mets have a 5-1 record in doubles. They will look at the rebound after a heavy defeat by sailors home on Sunday, leading to their first defeat of the series this season – following a record 9-0-1 franchise earlier this year.

There may even be some animosity between the Cards and the Mets after the two teams quarreled at Busch Stadium the last time they played each other, just three weeks ago. Mets, who is in the lead in the major with 24 hit the pitcheswere emotional after the Cardinals held another Met, JD Davis, which partly led to incident on clearing benches in St. Louis.

Mets retailer Ioan Lopez sent a quick ball up and into Nolan Arenada, who then shouted and showed Lopez before kicking catcher Thomas Nida, and the teams spilled onto the field. Pitcher “Rent” and “Cardinals” Genesis Cabrera, who pulled the collar of Pete Alonso during the incident on the field, both received deviations and penalties from MLB. But, to the surprise of manager Buck Shawolter, “Cardinals” coach Staby Clapp, who fought with Alonso in the style of “bear hugs”, received neither a rejection nor a fine.

On Tuesday, the meeting of the Cardinals and the Mets will take place for the first time after a trick in the series final, losing to the Mets 10-5, at Bush Stadium on April 27.
