Game 5, well -- the rest of it anyway -- is a go for tonight. The first pitch is expected to be made at 8:37.
The Phillies say that gates will open at 5:30 p.m. Fans will need their tickets from Monday to get back into Citizens Bank Park. If you have a ticket that you think might be unscannable – maybe crinkled or partially torn or just plain mangled from the dampness – the Phillies recommend that you get down there to give them time to take care of the problem.
Fans who drive to the complex also should plan on arriving earlier than usual. Parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, the Phillies say. Fans with parking passes or receipts from Monday (Oct. 27) will be permitted to gain re-entry into any of the sports complex lots. They will not be required to park in the same lot. Those without passes or receipts from Monday, Oct. 27, will be required to pay for parking.
Remember there’s also a Sixers game going on at the complex. That will start at 6 p.m.
SEPTA has said that Sports Express service on the Broad Street Line will be implemented from 6:25 p.m. to 7:35 p.m. between Fern Rock Transportation Center and Pattison Station. Trains will run every 10 minutes and stop at Olney, Erie, Girard, Spring Garden, Race-Vine, City Hall, Walnut-Locust and then Pattison Avenue. Express trains also will provide service after the game is over.
