With Hurricane Irene working its way toward the Florida coast, the Marlins have moved Thursday's game with the Reds up a day to Wednesday, playing a doubleheader before Cincinnati returns home and Florida heads to Philadelphia.
The game had been scheduled for 7:10 p.m. Thursday, but now the team will play two on Wednesday, with first pitch for the first game scheduled for 4:10 p.m. and the second game coming 20 minutes after the conclusion of first game.
The two teams begin their three-game series tonight at Sun Life Stadium.
The storm is expected to to pass to the east of the Florida coast between Thursday and Friday and could impact the Marlins' Sunday game in Philadelphia if it stays on its current projected path.
The Reds' Homer Bailey will face Javier Vazquez in the first game, while Bronson Arroyo and Chris Volstad will start the second game.
