The Philadelphia Phillies host the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. (Game Time: 4:05 p.m. ET, TV Schedule: CSN Philly)
The two teams were rained out on Friday night, and Game 1 of the three game series was postponed until a day-night double-header on Sunday.
The Rays will be playing their first game in Philadelphia since the 2008 World Series. Ironically, the Phillies secured their World Series title that year in Game 5, which was finished two days after it began because of rain.
Kyle Kendrick is likely to pitch for the Phillies as Cliff Lee, who was supposed to pitch Friday, is expected to have his start pushed back to Sunday. The Rays will counter with James Shields.
