Marlins-Phils game rescheduled
Monday Night Football is impacting the Marlins.
On Tuesday night, the Marlins announced they are switching their Sept. 21 game with the Phillies to July 16 at Dolphin Stadium. The change comes to accommodate the Miami Dolphins, the primary tenant at the stadium. Tickets issued for the Sept. 21 will be honored on July 16.
The Dolphins will be playing a Monday night game on Sept. 21 at home against the Indianapolis Colts.
What the change means for the Marlins is they will gain an off day in late September. But instead of a three-game set with their NL East rival Phillies, that series now will be two games.
The change impacts Florida’s final homestand. The Marlins will now have a five-game homestand at Dolphin Stadium from Sept. 22-27 against the Phillies and Mets. New York will be in town Sept. 25 for the first of three games.
