Mets, Guardians set for Sunday doubleheader after Saturday's rainout
The Mets announced that Saturday's game against the Cleveland Guardians has been postponed due to rain.
Saturday's washout will be made up as part of a split-admission doubleheader on Sunday, with game one scheduled to begin at 1:40 p.m. on PIX11 and game two scheduled for 7:10 p.m. on ESPN.
The Mets catch a small break with the unscheduled day off after using both Adam Ottavino (three games over four days) and David Robertson (three-straight days) in Friday night's dramatic 10-9 walk-off win in extra-innings.
Max Scherzer (3-2, 4.88 ERA) was scheduled to go up against Cleveland rookie Tanner Bibee (1-1, 3.22 ERA) Saturday and the two are expected to start in Sunday's matinee.
Justin Verlander (1-2, 4.76 ERA) is scheduled to make his second start at Citi Field in the nightcap against RHP Shane Bieber (3-2, 3.20 ERA).
