The Phillies announced Wednesday that Thursday’s game against the New York Mets will be moved up from a 7 p.m. start, to a 12 p.m. start due to the threat of rain being brought by Hurricane Joaquin.
Here’s the official announcement by the team via their Twitter profile:

This should come as good news for any fans who were worried about rain keeping Thursday’s game from being played. The Phillies are allowing fans who have tickets for the game to exchange them for any of the team’s remaining home games, or even a home game next season (excluding Opening Day).
So if you can’t make the game, or would rather not watch budding starter Jerad Eikhoff take the mound, you can head to another game this weekend and watch Maikel Franco return from the disabled list, or get a some free stuff during Sunday’s Fan Appreciation Day.
Good on ya, Phillies.
