D-backs-Mets game pushed back to 7:30 ET

NEW YORK -- The Mets and D-backs were delayed on Wednesday evening -- but only for a bit.

First pitch for Wednesday's game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET. Though a brief flash of heavy rain hit Citi Field about an hour before game time, it did not linger in the area. Grounds-crew members began removing the tarp at approximately 6:45. Arizona lefty Robbie Ray is slated to start against Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon.
