Braves, Phillies Game 2 will be delayed due to rain


The tarp is on the field at Truist Park and rain has been falling. The forecast is calling for more showers throughout the evening which puts Game 2’s scheduled start time of 4:35 pm in jeopardy. It is a situation that the Braves, Phillies and Major League Baseball are currently monitoring.

The Athletic’s Matt Gelb reports that MLB officials will meet at 4 pm to decide a course of action. A delayed start is definitely possible. Phillies manager Rob Thomson said during his pregame presser that the game won’t start until they think they can play the whole thing without a delay.

Update – MLB announced that Game 2 will not start at 4:35 pm and a start time has yet to be determined.

There hasn’t been a rain out at Truist Park this season. We will update this article when more information becomes available.
