Quick Notes: Washington Nationals to play a doubleheader Friday because of Hurricane Ian
Hurricane Ian has forced changes in the Phillies' schedule for their upcoming series in Washington.
As we reported earlier today, things were a bit in flux because of Hurricane Ian, which will affect the weather here in Washington D.C. Things have been sorted out for now.
The Washington Nationals announced they would move Saturday night's originally scheduled game to Friday afternoon, with the first pitch at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
The Nationals and the Phillies will play a separate admission doubleheader on Friday. Game times will be 1 and 7 p.m.
The teams will play Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 1:35 p.m. If Saturday's game is rained out, a doubleheader will be played on Sunday.
The two teams had initially been scheduled to play a single game Friday night, followed by a doubleheader Saturday and a single game on Sunday.
These games mean a bit more for the Phillies as they are looking to break a 10-year postseason drought, as they currently only have a half-game lead over Milwaukee Brewers for the final NL wild-card spot.
