Game 3 of the 2022 World Series was put on hold for 24 hours as rains scattered across the metro Philadelphia area. Monday's matchup between the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies was officially postponed and the remaining games in the series will be pushed back a day.

Following the schedule change, the Dusty Baker revealed his plans for the starting rotation.

Below is an updated scheduled for the Fall Classic.

Game 3: Tuesday, Nov. 1 at Citizens Bank Park (FOX - 8:03 p.m. ET)
Game 4: Wednesday, Nov. 2 at Citizens Bank Park (FOX - 8:03 p.m. ET)
Game 5: Thursday, Nov. 3 at Citizens Bank Park (FOX - 8:03 p.m. ET)
Game 6: Saturday, Nov. 5 at Minute Maid Park (FOX - 8:03 p.m. ET) if necessary
Game 7: Sunday, Nov. 6 at Minute Maid Park (FOX - 8:03 p.m. ET) if necessary

MLB insider Jayson Stark reports manager Dusty Baker is sticking with his original plan. Lance McCullers will still get the ball on Tuesday night for Game 3. Cristian Javier, the original Game 4 starter, is less set in stone but Baker called him a "likely" starter.

The Phillies opted for a change on their side. Noah Syndergaard was pushed back to Game 5 and Ranger Suarez will get the nod in Game 3 instead.

The series is officially notched at 1-1. Houston still holds an edge, according to World Series odds on FanDuel Sportsbook, and considered -170 favorites to win the series. Even with the pitching change on Philadelphia's side, Houston is still considered -126 moneyline favorites for Tuesday's clash.
