Brewers-Phillies rained out

Sep 13, 2008 - 1:23 AM PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia Phillies' push for a playoff spot will have to wait.

Sitting three games out of both the National League East Division and the wild card, the Phillies on Friday had their game against the Milwaukee Brewers postponed due to rain.

The game has been rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday. The regularly scheduled contest will start at 1:35 p.m. EDT, while Friday's matchup will be made up beginning at 7:35 p.m.

The Phillies (80-67), who have not been rained out at home since April 16, 2007, posted a 6-3 victory over the Brewers in the opener of their four-game series Thursday to climb within three games of Milwaukee (83-64) for the top spot in the wild card standings. With the triumph, Philadelphia also gained one-half game on the idle New York Mets (82-63) for first place in the NL East.

New York's home game against the Atlanta Braves on Friday also was washed out by rain.

Both scheduled starters for Friday's game will pitch Saturday. The Brewers will send Manny Parra (10-7) to the mound against fellow lefthander Cole Hamels (12-9), who has held opponents to two runs or less in seven of his past 10 outings.
