Friday's 6:05 p.m. game between the Mets and Nationals is postponed due to inclement weather at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., the Nationals announced.
The teams are set to resume the series with a pair of seven-inning games Saturday, starting at 3:05 p.m.
"The game regularly scheduled for September 26 will begin 30-45 minutes after the conclusion of the first game," the Nationals said in part of a statement Friday. "Both games will have a regulation length of 7 innings."
Fresh off Thursday's 3-2 win over the Nationals (23-34), the Mets (25-30) looked to take the four-game series lead Friday.
The Mets were slated to start RHP Rick Porcello (1-6, 5.46 ERA).
Whether or not Porcello still starts Saturday remains to be seen.
The Mets were already projected to go with ace RHP Jacob deGrom (4-2, 2.14 ERA) in Saturday's 6:05 p.m. game.
RHP Seth Lugo (3-3, 3.82 ERA) is in line to start Sunday's 3:05 p.m. game.
Coverage will begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday on SNY.
