The New York Mets and Pittsburgh Pirates have had their Labor Day Monday game postponed due to rain. The game was scheduled to start at 12:35 p.m. ET on ESPN+, but the postponement was announced just before 10 a.m. on Monday, per Anthony DiComo.
The game will be made up on Wednesday as part of a split doubleheader. Admission for the first game will be at 12:35 p.m. and admission for the second game will be at 6:35 p.m.
Monday’s game was set to feature Taijuan Walker facing Mitch Keller. Jacob deGrom and Bryse Wilson were scheduled for Tuesday, but for the time-being it’s unclear how the rotations will adjust with the postponement.
The Mets came into Monday with an 85-50 record and a one-game lead on the Braves in the NL East. The Mets are eight games back of the Dodgers for the best record in the National League. The Pirates are 49-84 and sit in last place in the NL Central, 4.5 games back of the Reds.
