PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Friday evening’s severe weather in Philadelphia has forced the Phillies-Braves game to be postponed. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday.

The rescheduled game will begin roughly 40 minutes after the conclusion of Sunday’s schedule 1:05 p.m. start.

The Phillies now have six doubleheaders on the schedule and already played a seven-inning twinbill against the Yankees on Wednesday.

The Phillies have to make up a week’s worth of games because a coronavirus outbreak among the Marlins forced them to take a week off after several Miami players had the virus during a weekend series in Philadelphia to open the 60-game season.
