Rain washes out Mets-Phillies game
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Rain gave the Philadelphia Phillies a mini All-Star break.
Wednesday night's game between the Phillies and New York Mets was postponed because of rain, giving the Phillies three days off in a four-day span. The Phillies, who were off Monday, return to the field Friday night against Washington.
The game against the Mets was rescheduled for June 2 at 7:05 p.m. Both teams had been scheduled for a day off then.
The Mets beat the Phillies 6-1 Tuesday night in a game played during steady rain after a delay of 1 hour, 28 minutes at the start. The Mets will travel to Colorado to open a four-game set on Thursday night.
Kendrick will pitch Monday against Toronto followed by Hernandez on Tuesday.
This was the first postponement this season for the Mets. The Phillies (13-13) had three home games postponed in April, including their home opener that was played the next day.
The Mets, off to a 15-11 start, will get outfielder Juan Lagares back on their road trip. Lagares has been sidelined by a hamstring injury since April 15.
NOTES: The Mets sent an open letter to fans, inviting them to add their name to a list calling themselves ''True New Yorkers'' and urging them to show their support. Former Mets greats Doc Gooden, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling were among those who signed the letter.
