• Game postponement information
This weekend will already mark the fourth series the Phillies have played against the Nats on the young season. They are 4-5 versus the defending National League East champions thus far, with most of the games being decided by two runs or fewer.
While the Phillies will have to play two games on Sunday, the rescheduled game will still allow them to enjoy their off-day on Monday, which comes before a grueling 16-day stretch without one.
