Phillies-Marlins Saturday game postponed

The Phillies-Marlins game, scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, was postponed due to Hurricane Irene. The Phillies had hoped to start the game on time and get through it, but the tarp never came off the field as the storm grew worse in the early afternoon.

The Phillies-Marlins game, scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, was postponed due to Hurricane Irene. The Phillies had hoped to start the game on time and get through it, but the tarp never came off the field as the storm grew worse in the early afternoon.

The two teams will play a doubleheader on Sept. 15, which was previously a day off for the Phillies.

The Phillies have 33 games remaining, and not counting Sunday, which is now an off day due to the storm, they have 31 days in which to play those games.
