Tuesday's game between the Phillies and Braves has been postponed due to weather conditions in the area. First pitch had been scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

There has not been a make-up date announced, but the team said in a press release that it will not be made up this week. The Braves return to Citizens Bank Park for a weekend series at the end of June, and again in late September for the final series of the regular season.

Because of the postponement, the Phillies were forced to adjust their pitching schedule, but the rotation remains the same, with everyone sliding back one day. Lefty Cliff Lee, originally scheduled to pitch today, will pitch on Wednesday against Julio Teheran, meaning the Braves will skip today's projected starter, David Hale.

Righty A.J. Burnett will follow on Thursday for the Phillies in the series finale.
