The Dodgers and Mets game today, July 15, was delayed by bad weather in New York. Check here for updates on the new start time and more.

The second half of the MLB season started up on Friday as the Dodgers blasted the Mets 6-0. New York may have hoped to bounce back on Saturday but the weather is making them wait a bit longer to do that.

Storms near Citi Field forced the game on Saturday to be delayed.

When will the game start back up? That’s the question everyone is asking and we’re looking for the answers.

Is the Dodgers-Mets game today canceled?

No. While things could obviously change, the initial word for Saturday’s game was a rain delay, not a cancelation.

Dodgers-Mets rain delay update: Start time after weather delay

This post will be updated as official updates are provided by the Mets.

UPDATE: The Mets and Dodgers are now scheduled to begin play at 8:00 p.m. ET.

At 6:39 p.m. ET, the Mets officially called a rain delay. However, they did not provide information about when fans can expect the game to get going.

Friday was not a good time for Mets fans, so the sooner they can wipe the bad taste from that defeat out of their mouths the better.

After four scoreless innings from both sides, the Dodgers opened things up in the fifth with an RBI single from Mookie Betts and a double from Freddie Freeman. The sixth inning brought another run for Los Angeles before JD Martinez hit an eighth inning home run to pile on some more. In the top of the ninth, Will Smith drove in the final run to make it 6-0.
