The scheduled game between the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets on Tuesday night has been postponed because of inclement weather.

The game between the NL East rivals will be made up Thursday night, an originally scheduled off day for both clubs.

The Phillies came into play Tuesday trailing the St. Louis Cardinals by 3 1/2 games for the second National League wild-card spot.
