Phillies rained out, doubleheader Saturday

The rain wouldn't stop at Citizens Bank Park Friday night, so the Phillies and the White Sox were forced to postpone their series opener into part of a Saturday day-night doubleheader.

Friday night's scheduled contest will now be played Saturday night at 8:15, with the scheduled fireworks show taking place after the game. Fans should use their Friday ticket for that game, with gates opening at 7:15. The Phillies were able to obtain special permission to televise the game locally despite FOX having an exclusive national window.

Saturday's 4:05 game has been moved up an hour to 3:05 to accommodate the changing of crowds, with gates opening at 1:05.
