Weather forecast for Mets-Nationals game at Citi Field (10/4/22)
Mother Nature has troubled to postpone or cancel Monday’s game at Citi Field between the New York Mets and the Washington Nationals.
The Mets confirmed that the game on Monday will be rescheduled due to rain.
From Mets PR:
The New York Mets have announced that tonight’s game against the Washington Nationals has been postponed due to rain. It will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader tomorrow, Tuesday, October 4 beginning at 4:10 p.m. Gates will open at 2:10 p.m. and parking lots will open at 1:10 p.m. Game two will begin approximately 30-40 minutes after the conclusion of game one.
The National Weather Service has issued the following forecast:
Showers are possible before 11 a.m. A high near 60 degrees is forecast. Winds from the northeast at 17 to 20 mph.
After 2 a.m., there is a 20% chance of showers. A low of 50 degrees is forecast. Winds from the northeast at 16 mph.
The Mets and Nationals play the first of three games on Monday.
The Yankees are coming off a weekend loss in Atlanta, where the Braves swept their three-game series at Truist Park.
And they did it in style, defeating the Mets’ best starting pitchers on three consecutive days: Jacob deGrom on Friday, Max Scherzer on Saturday, and Chris Bassitt on Sunday.
As a consequence, the Braves now lead the National League East. With three regular-season games remaining, Atlanta leads by two games.
That means the defending World Series champions will win their fifth straight division title if the Braves win or the Mets lose.
The Braves won five of the last six games of their series with the Mets, outscoring them 42-19 during that span.
New York had a 12-game lead on June 1 but is now the lowest in the standings of the season.
