The Phillies and Rockies will open Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Wednesday with a first pitch of 2:37 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park.

Thursday's game also will be a 2:37 p.m. start in Philadelphia.

The series shifts to Denver for Game 3 and potentially Game 4 next weekend. Game 3 at Coors Field will have a start time of 9:37 p.m. Eastern.

Game times have not been set for Sunday's Game 4, if necessary, or a Game 5 in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Oct. 13.

This mirrors the schedule in 2007 when the Phillies hosted both afternoon games in the Division Series against the Rockies. Last year, the Phillies opened against the Brewers with a day game and then had a 6:07 start for Game 2.

Also, while Charlie Manuel did not announce the identity of the Phillies' Game 1 starter, Colorado manager Jim Tracy essentially named Ubaldo Jiminez.

Jiminez went 15-12 with a 3.47 earned run average. He struck out 198 batters in 218 innings pitched. He dd not face the Phillies this year.

The Rockies' Game 2 starter depends on the health of lefthander Jorge De La Rosa, who injured his groin Saturday night against the Dodgers. Tracy said his condition remains undetermined. De La Rosa is 0-2 against the Phillies this season.
