The game will be replayed as part of a day-night doubleheader on
Sept. 2, with the first game set to begin at 1:05 p.m. and the
nightcap scheduled for 7:05 p.m. The teams play Sunday night. Myers (6-3) will oppose Horacio Ramirez (5-3). Myers was arrested last month for allegedly striking his wife,
Kim, in the face on a Boston street corner. The Phillies came under
heavy criticism for allowing Myers to pitch against the Red Sox a
day after the incident. Myers pleaded not guilty to the charges and was placed on the
temporary inactive list a few days after pitching against Boston.
He returned to the Phillies last week, and pitched seven solid
innings in a victory at San Francisco last Sunday. The Braves would've been without their two most dangerous
hitters, Chipper Jones and Andruw Jones. Chipper Jones, who has a
20-game hitting streak, injured his left side early in Friday
night's game. Andruw Jones was a late scratch because of a sore
back. Both players are day-to-day.
