NEW YORK – The New York Mets will have to wait another day to play their series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Monday's game has been postponed because of heavy rain rolling through the New York City area.

The game was supposed to start at 4:10 p.m., but has been rescheduled for the same time on Tuesday, as part of a doubleheader. The second game will start approximately 30 minutes after the first one finishes.

Fans who had tickets for Monday's game cannot use them on Tuesday, but they will receive a voucher for a future game, which can be used for the doubleheader. Fans with tickets for Tuesday will now be able to attend both games of the doubleheader.

"Your ticket for today is not valid for tomorrow's game. You will receive a digital voucher loaded into your My Mets Tickets account that will be accessible tomorrow morning," the Mets posted on social media. "You can use that voucher for tomorrow's double-header, or another Mets 2024 regular season home game at Citi (exclusions apply)."

Many fans who had the day off for Memorial Day shared their disappointment in the replies, with some calling for a roof over Citi Field. 

The Mets have lost 10 of their past 13 games. They ended a five-game losing streak on Sunday, rallying for three runs in the ninth inning to beat San Francisco 4-3.

The NL West-leading Dodgers have lost five straight games, their longest skid since six in a row in April 2019.

Tylor Megill was slated to start Monday for the Mets, and Gavin Stone was due on the mound for the Dodgers. Megill will now start the first game Tuesday against Dodgers' Tylor Glasnow, and Stone will start the second game against Mets' Jose Quintana.
