FLUSHING, Queens — Mets ace Jacob deGrom likely lost one of his last two starts planned heading into the All-Star break when a game against the Milwaukee Brewers was rained out.

The game was called after a wait of nearly 2 1/2 hours and rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday.

DeGrom, 7-2 with a record-low 0.95 ERA, had been scheduled to start against left-hander Brett Anderson (2-5, 4.69). New York planned to have deGrom start the final game before the break on Sunday.

DeGrom was rescheduled to start Wednesday’s opener against Milwaukee All-Star Corbin Burnes (4-4, 2.41).
