Playing One Today, Two Sunday

Jim Salisbury takes a look at how the decision came to be made that the Phillies and Brewers will play a day-night doubleheader Sunday.

Playing One Today, Two Sunday


The Phillies postponed last night's game against the Brewers a little after 6:30 p.m.

Then the debate started.

Play Monday? Play a day-night doubleheader Sunday?

Jim Salisbury takes a look behind the scenes at how the decision was made to play twice Sunday, the second Sunday in a row the Phillies have had a day-night doubleheader.


Fans with tickets to last night's game can use them for Game 2 of the doubleheader, which begins at 7:35 p.m.


Pat Burrell might have just 15 games left in a Phillies uniform. That has crossed his mind a few times the last couple weeks.


In case you missed it, the Phillies went 4 for 4 in tiebreaker coin flips.


The Mets are pretty forward, huh?
