Braves, Mets postpone final two games of this weekend’s series
With Hurricane Irene making its way toward New York City, the Braves and Mets have postponed the final two games of this weekend’s series at Citi Field. Friday night’s game will be played as scheduled.
There has not been an announcement about when Saturday and Sunday’s scheduled games could be played. The teams share a common offday on Sept. 8. There is a chance both games could be played as part of a doubleheader that day.
The Braves would be able to make the short trip to New York after concluding a three-game series in Philadelphia on Sept. 7. They are scheduled to begin a three-game series in St. Louis on Sept. 9.
With the possibility that heavy rain and winds could begin early Saturday evening, New York City officials have announced the Subway will shut down at noon Saturday.
