NEW YORK — The St. Louis Cardinals’ game at the New York Mets on Monday night was postponed because of rain and will be made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday starting at 3:10 p.m.

Showers started just before batting practice was scheduled to start, and the rainout was announced just before the scheduled 7:10 p.m. start.

Both games Tuesday will be televised on FOX Sports Midwest. Coverage begins at 2:30 p.m. CT with the Cardinals Live pregame show, with the first pitch of Game 1 scheduled for 3:10 p.m. CT.
