Rain pushes Braves-Phillies season opener to Friday

phillies citizens rain

A rainy forecast forced the Philadelphia Phillies to postpone Thursday’s Opening Day date with the visiting Atlanta Braves to Friday at 3:05 p.m. ET.

Friday had previously been an open date, with the teams continuing their three-game series on Saturday and Sunday.

“Due to the anticipated rain on Thursday, we have elected to move our home opener with the Braves to Friday,” Phillies executive vice president David Buck said. “This decision was made after consultation with Major League Baseball and various weather services. The open date on Friday gives us the ability to reschedule the game.”

All gates at Citizens Bank Park will open at 12:35 p.m. Tickets for Thursday’s sold-out opener will be valid for admission on Friday.

Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola and Braves left-hander Max Fried are the scheduled starters for the opener.
