Stroman unhappy Mets allowed him to start in rain

NEW YORK (AP) — Marcus Stroman is unhappy that the New York Mets began their game against the Miami Marlins in a steady rain that interrupted his outing after nine pitches. The game began at 1:10 p.m. and was stopped by plate umpire D.J. Reyburn after seven minutes. Home teams decide whether to start games. Once a game has begun, umpires decide whether to stop play because of bad weather. Stroman wrote on Twitter: “This game should have never been started. Not smart at all. Those conditions put everyone at risk. Beyond happy no players on either side were injured.”
