The game is official given that the Phillies took the lead in the home half of the fifth. We will pass along updates here as they become available.

Jokes aside, radar shows more heavy rain approaching and then possibly clearing out after that. At that point, we should get an update on a potential time to restart.
The umpires are now looking at a portion of the infield. Likely trying to get a sense of how wet the ground got before the tarp was placed on the field. pic.twitter.com/il13Q3TtHu— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) September 25, 2022
The field took a ton of water because the umpiring crew initially refused to signal for the tarp.
