The Phillies-Marlins Saturday night game postponed due to Irene

60 Comments

The Sunday game between the Phillies and Marlins had been moved to Saturday as part of a double header. Now the back end of that doubleheader has been cancelled due to the fact that it’s really gonna be rainin’ and blowin’ by Saturday night.  The day game scheduled for 1PM tomorrow is still on track. For now.  Sorry to all of you guys who were hoping for a Halladay-Lee doubleheader.

The game has been rescheduled for September 15th, which had been Philly’s only day off all month.  Which I am sure will totally stop their march to the division title in its tracks.

Garcia, 26, suffered the injury during Monday’s game against the Mariners. He is off to a slow start this season, batting .233/.250/.315 with a home run and four RBI in 76 plate appearances.

Palka, 26, has been playing well for Charlotte, batting .286/.384/.476 with three home runs and seven RBI in 73 PA.
