Rain has forced the postponement of the Mets 1:10 pm game today versus the San Francisco Giants.  Instead, the two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 4:10pm.

Miguel Batista will start game one for the Mets, with Dillon Gee going in the game to follow.  The decision to start Batista means that Johan Santana will be bumped back a day and will face the Miami Marlins when they arrive at Citi Field on Tuesday.
