PHILADELPHIA -- Buckle up, Phillies. You have a packed schedule in September.

Major League Baseball announced a revised schedule following the Phillies’ recent postponements because of COVID-19 concerns. The Phillies will play 36 games in the final 34 days of the season. Sept. 9 and 24 are their only off-days after Aug. 24.

Phillies' 2020 schedule

Here are the highlights:

• The Phillies had last weekend’s three-game series against the Blue Jays postponed. The Phillies and Blue Jays will play a doubleheader on Aug. 20 at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, beginning at 1:05 p.m. ET. For travel purposes, the Phillies’ Aug. 19 game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park has been moved up to 1:35 p.m.

• The Phillies and Blue Jays will also play a doubleheader on Sept. 18 at Citizens Bank Park, beginning at 4:05 p.m. Toronto will be the home team in Game 1. The Phillies will be the home team in Game 2.

• The Phillies had this week’s three-game series in Miami postponed. The teams will play seven games in five days in September to make up those games. They will play one game Sept. 10 at 6:40 p.m., a doubleheader Sept. 11 beginning at 5:10 p.m., one game Sept. 12 at 6:10 p.m., a doubleheader Sept. 13 beginning at 1:10 p.m. and one game Sept. 14 at 4:10 p.m.

• The two-game series between the Phillies and Red Sox at Citizens Bank Park on Sept. 8-9 is now a doubleheader on Sept. 8, beginning at 4:05 p.m. Game 2 will not begin earlier than 7:05 p.m. because it’s an FS1 national telecast. It gives the Phillies a day off Sept. 9.
