Game 3 start time pushed back

The Yankees' sweep of the Twins in the American League Division Series means the Phillies-Reds game Sunday night has been pushed back an hour to an 8:07 p.m. start time. The game will be shown on TBS.

Major League Baseball had announced the change was possible a few days ago, pending how many games were needed Sunday. With the end of the Yankees-Twins ALDS, there now will be three games Sunday. Game 4 of the Rays-Rangers series begins at 1 p.m. followed by Game 3 of the Giants-Braves series at 4:30 p.m. and then Game 3 of the Phillies-Reds series.

Had there been four games Sunday, Phillies-Reds would have been at 7:07 p.m. on TNT.

Of course, the later start for baseball further heightens the overlap between the Phillies and the Eagles-Niners game on Sunday Night Football on NBC, with kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m.
