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.

As part of the schedule change, the Phillies made a tweak to their 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

Noah Syndergaard was originally tabbed for Game 3, but he'll now be pushed to Game 5 "if he isn't used beforehand." This lines up Ranger Suarez as the new probable pitcher on Tuesday night and Aaron Nola in Game 4 on Wednesday.

According to MLB insider Tim Healey, Zack Wheeler is lined up for a potential Game 6 on Saturday and "is getting extra rest."

The series is officially notched at 1-1. Houston still holds a slight edge, according to World Series odds on FanDuel Sportsbook, and considered -170 favorites to win the series. The Phillies are +145 for the series betting and just slime +108 underdogs in Game 3.
