PHILADELPHIA -- The middle game of the three-game series between the Braves and Phillies on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park was postponed because of rain.

It was rescheduled as the first game of a split-admission doubleheader on Sept. 11.

Phillies right-hander (6-5, 4.66 ERA) and Braves right-hander (1-0, 2.03 ERA) were scheduled to pitch Wednesday. The Braves will now have face Nola on Thursday afternoon (1:05 p.m. ET).

The Phillies will push back everybody in their rotation one day because of the postponement. So this weekend against the Mets at CBP it will be Taijuan Walker on Friday, Cristopher Sánchez on Saturday and Zack Wheeler on Sunday.
