The Phillies have rescheduled the Saturday night game against the Florida Marlins due to the approach of Hurricane Irene.

The game, which was scheduled to start at 7:05 p.m. will be played on Thursday, September 15th at a time to be determined.

All tickets for the August 27 game at 7:05 p.m. will be honored for entry into the September 15 game.

"Given the deteriorating forecast for Saturday night's game, as well as the evening shut down of public transportation and the concern about conditions our fans might face leaving our game late Saturday night, ?the decision was made to postpone the 7:05 p.m. game," said Mike Stiles, Senior Vice President, Administration and Operations, in a statement.

The game sheduled for 1:05 p.m. Saturday will be played. That game had originally been scheduled for Sunday.
