Mets Vs. Giants: Sunday's Game 3 Postponed Due To Weather Forecast

The weather forecast for Flushing, NY isn't a good one, and the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants, who were each set to play Game 3 of a four-game set on Sunday, have decided to postpone the contest until Monday when a old-fashioned doubleheader will be played starting at 4 p.m. ET.

Sunday's pitching match-up was suppose to feature the Mets' Dillon Gee pitching against Giants' ace Tim Lincecum, but that will be different Monday. In Game 1, Miguel Batista will toss for the Mets, while Lincecum will go for the Giants; Game 2 will feature Gee against Madison Bumgarner.

Mets ace Johan Santana, who was suppose to pitch Monday against Bumgarner, will now make his fourth start of the season on Tuesday, when New York hosts the Miami Marlins at 7 p.m. ET.

So far, the series is split at two games apiece, as San Francisco won Game 1 (4-3) in 10 innings, however, lost Game 2 on Saturday, 5-4.

The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants will play Game 3 of a four-game set Sunday, as the teams face off at Citi Field at 1:05 p.m. ET on WPIX. Dillon Gee takes the mound for the Mets (8-6) for the third time this season, while ace Tim Lincecum tosses for the Giants (7-7).

Here's the Sunday lineup for the Mets:

Kirk Nieuwenhuis-CF,
Daniel Murphy-2B,

Mets Vs. Giants Score: Mets Win 5-4 On Buster Posey Throwing Error

The New York Mets took game two of their four game series with the San Francisco Giants on Saturday, which included a wild ninth inning.

Leading 4-1 going into the ninth inning, the Mets brought in their closer, Frank Fransisco, attempting to save his fourth game of the season. He lasted only one third of an inning, as he allowed two hits, walked one and gave up three runs. Tim Byrdak and Jon Rauch came in to clean up the mess, but Rauch gave up the game-tying RBI double to Brandon Belt, sending the game into the bottom of the ninth, tied at four.

Lucas Duda led off the bottom of the inning with a single and was then pinch ran for by Scott Hairston, who was bunted to second by the next batter. A walk and an infield single followed, loading the bases. With the bases juiced, Kirk Nieuwenhuis grounded into a fielder's choice, but the game-winning run scored on a Buster Posey throwing error.

The series is now tied at one and game three is scheduled for 1:10 PM on Sunday.
