Hurricane Irene Forces Philadelphia Phillies To Postpone Today's Doubleheader

Hurricane Irene originally forced the Phillies to move Sunday’s game to this afternoon, then caused tonight’s game to be canceled… and now she has struck again. Due to earlier than expected rainfall as a result of Irene, the Phillies have postponed today’s early game against the Marlins as well. The makeup date has not yet been determined.

The late game today has already been rescheduled for the 15th of September. Hurricane Irene is expected to bring damaging winds, record rainfall and flooding to most of the Delaware Valley. Evactuations have already been ordered along the Jersey Shore and many forms of public transportation in the city could be shut down in anticipation of the storm.

In addition to both Phillies games, the Philadelphia Union have also postponed their game against the New England Revolution, which was originally scheduled for tomorrow evening.

The Phillies will return to action Monday in Cincinnati when Cole Hamels is expected to be activated off the DL to start.
