Tonight would’ve been the first game between the Atlanta Braves and the San Diego Padres since the 2019 season. As it turns out, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see it happen since the weather in the Atlanta metro area didn’t agree with baseball happening. As a result of inclement weather, tonight’s game has been postponed and a doubleheader has been scheduled.

Interestingly enough, the doubleheader has been scheduled for Wednesday instead of Tuesday. It’ll be played as part of a day-night doubleheader, with the original 12:20 PM first pitch time serving as game one and a 5:20 PM start serving as game two. I’m guessing that Wednesday got marked as a doubleheader since we might be in this same position tomorrow night. As of right now, the forecast for tomorrow in the Atlanta metro area is looking stormy as well, so there’s a decent chance that rain may play a factor in tomorrow’s game. Of course, weather is always subject to change so you might want to keep an eye on the weather forecast for the time being.

If everything goes off without a hitch, Kyle Muller should still be the scheduled starter for tomorrow’s game. Game one on Wednesday will be started by Touki Toussaint (who will be making his first major league start of 2021) and Game two will see Charlie Morton take the mound to get things going for Atlanta. Again, here’s hoping that the weather cooperates on Tuesday so that we can get a full series in. But for now, it’s time to just enjoy baseball as a neutral observer of the other games on MLB’s Monday slate.
