Phillies doubleheader information

This from the Phillies. I like the note at the end that points out the Phillies are 5-1 in three doubheaders at Citzens Bank Park.

Wednesday, August 17, 2005



Tuesday night’s (August 16) rained out game against Washington has been rescheduled as a 1:05 p.m. game on Thursday, August 18, as part of a day-night doubleheader. The regularly scheduled game for Thursday will remain a 7:05 p.m. start. Each game is a separate admission.
