The New York Mets short two-game series with the Florida Marlins became an even shorter one when Tuesday night's matchup was postponed due to rain.
Things actually didn't look too bad around Citi Field late in the afternoon, but the team did not feel there would be enough of a window after first pitch to get the game in. With the Mets suffering multiple injuries and playing extra innings after nearly a 90-minute delay, a day off right now isn't the worst thing for the team right now.
The game will be made up on July 18, on a mutual off-day, instead of adding a double-header to one of the Marlins two remaining visits to Citi Field.
