Padres and Phillies Monday Game Rained Out

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - With steady rain falling, the San Diego Padres appreciated an early postponement of their finale against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night, especially with a a cross-country flight to San Francisco looming and a game the next night.

"We definitely thank the Phillies for taking that into consideration," Padres second baseman David Eckstein said. "It looked like it was going to be a miserable night out there and there really wasn't even a chance to play tonight. It gives us the opportunity to get to San Francisco at a reasonable hour as opposed to waiting around and canceling it anyway."

The Padres won the first two games of the weekend series, but Raul Ibanez's two-run homer in the ninth inning Sunday gave Philadelphia a dramatic 5-4 victory.

The Phillies' rotation remains the same, with Jamie Moyer starting Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Joe Blanton and Cole Hamels will finish up the three-game series on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

The Padres will skip right-hander Kevin Correia - Monday's scheduled starter - and begin their season against the San Francisco Giants with ace Jake Peavy, then Chris Young.

It was unclear when the rainout would be made up. San Diego hosts the Phillies for a three-game series in June but isn't scheduled to return to Philadelphia this year.

Both teams are off May 11 and July 23, and those dates have been mentioned as possibilities. San Diego would be in the middle of a Houston-Chicago swing on May 11, while a July 23 date would come before a trip to Washington. and Cincinnati. The Phillies would be in the middle of a homestand each time.

Notes:@ The Padres announced rookie SS Everth Cabrera will miss six to eight weeks with a fractured hamate bone in his left hand. He will be placed on the disabled list on Tuesday. ... Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz (strained right oblique) took 25 swings off a tee on Monday and said everything felt fine. He said he hopes to go on a minor-league rehabilitation assignment as early as this weekend, possibly with Double-A Reading.
