Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies game postponed due to weather

UPDATE: The Braves have announced that David Hale will be skipped in the starting pitching rotation, and as a result, the rest of the series will go on as scheduled.


Earlier in the day on Tuesday, we brought a full-length preview of the festivities that were set to take place between the Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night, but unfortunately, the game has been officially postponed due to inclement weather.

During the afternoon, Kevin McAlpin of the Atlanta Braves Radio Network brought this report about the weather in Philadelphia.

Later, things apparently worsened.

And with that (and approximately 35 minutes later), the game was formally postponed. It seems silly to attempt to play a game that would have clearly been hampered throughout by weather, and the fact that we are so early in the season undoubtedly made the decision an easy one.

Shortly after the postponement, David O’Brien of the AJC indicated that no double-header would take place this week:

The series is scheduled to continue on Wednesday night at 7:05, and when we know more about pitching probables, etc., we will bring that information to you.
