Start of Rockies-Mets finale delayed by rain

NEW YORK -- For the second straight day Sunday, the Mets and Rockies opened their game in a rain delay.

A wet weekend continued at Citi Field, where the teams had been scheduled for a 1:10 p.m. ET start. But the tarp remained on the field at that time, with no immediate word of a new start time.
