The New York Mets will play a doubleheader on Tuesday after inclement weather forced the postponement of Monday’s series opener with the St. Louis Cardinals. 

The twin billing will take place in Queens with the first pitch scheduled for 3:10 p.m. in the first game and the second game will begin 30-40 minutes after the conclusion of the first. Fans will be able to enter Citi Field beginning at 2:10 p.m.

Fans will not be able to use tickets for Monday’s game for the Tuesday single-admission doubleheader and ticket holders will receive a digital voucher that can be used for any Mets regular-season game this year, except for July 9 Keith Hernandez number retirement, July 26-27 Subway Series vs. Yankees and Aug. 27 Old Timers Day. 

The Mets and Cardinals are scheduled to play a four-game set in Queens this week before the Amazins hit the road for a six-game road trip out west.
