NEW YORK -- If history is any indication, the Miami Marlins will have a tough time building on the momentum of Tuesday night's series-opening win over the New York Mets - especially since the Mets won't have Jacob deGrom to not support during Wednesday's doubleheader.

The first game, necessitated by a rainout on Monday, is scheduled to start at 4:10 PM. The regularly scheduled game will take place 20 minutes after the conclusion of the opener.
