Today’s rubber game against the Mets has been postponed, to be rescheduled at a later date.
It’s probably a good thing for both teams as the bullpens have been used a lot the past two games. Oliver Perez only went 2 1/3 innings yesterday and Moyer went 5 1/3 for the Phils. The bullpens had to come in and get the game to the 10th.
It’s also good news for Cole Hamels. The rainout means that he won’t have to pitch until Friday. That will give him plenty of time to rest his sprained ankle.
The first round of the battle between the division favorites wasn’t really all that exciting. The first game wasn’t very good from the Phillies’ perspective, but yesterday’s game ended with a thrilling walk-off walk. Yeah, real exciting.
I’m sure that these two teams will have many exciting match ups this season, but at this point, they’re just going to have to wait. Until Wednesday.
