Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc on shorelines and beach houses over the weekend and along the way ripped up a chunk of the MLB schedule. The Braves and the Mets lost two games of their three-game series to the storm. Those will now be played as a doubleheader at Citi Field on Sept. 8. That will mean that starting on Monday, Derek Lowe and the Braves were scheduled for 17 games over 16 days—tough sledding for a team that's worked around injuries all season. The team they're chasing in the NL East, the Phillies, will play 32 games in 31 days without an off-day through the end of the season. (The Yankees and the Orioles will also play inconvenient makeups after their weekend series in Baltimore was disrupted.) The toll pales in importance next to the physical damage wrought by Irene, but for some teams the storm will make a long season feel even longer.
