It's raining and there's no baseball Sunday in South Philadelphia.

The Phillies-Nationals series finale was postponed early Sunday morning. The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Sept. 20. All tickets for the Aug.14 game will be honored for entry into the first Sept. 20 game, beginning at 1:05 p.m.

Also postponed is the ceremony to unveil the Harry Kalas statue. That will now happen prior to Tuesday's game against Arizona, beginning at 6:40 p.m.

The Phillies will push their rotation back a day, meaning Roy Halladay will have two extra days' of rest with Monday's scheduled off day. The new rotation is as follows:
