By Sean Greene 12:21am, July 13, 2013The 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.
