The Atlanta Braves took down the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night by a final of 4-2. Atlanta's offense has continued to impress and Spencer Strider had a great performance on the mound.

Wednesday's game was set to take place at 6:40 PM EST at Citizens Bank Park but it is currently in a rain delay due to inclement weather in the area. First pitch start time has been pushed back to 7:15 PM EST.

**UPDATE: 7:15 PM EST** The tarp remains on the field as the anticipated start time has now passed and there is no update on a new start time for the game.

**UPDATE: 9:20 PM EST** The game has been postponed and will be made up in September as a day-night doubleheader.

There is some news to go over as we wait for the game to start. Michael Harris II was recently named Player of the Week as he continues to improve offensively. Max Fried and Dylan Lee are progressing well according to a report on Tuesday. Sean Murphy is also still working some things out and testing his hamstring out on the field with no issues but there's no timetable for his return yet.

The All-Star voting update was released and 3 Atlanta Braves are leading at their positions. There were quite a few Braves still in contention for their positions as well including Austin Riley, Travis d'Arnaud, and Ozzie Albies.

The Braves will send A.J. Smith-Shawver to the mound tonight and he will be opposed by Aaron Nola who the Braves typically have some success against. Check out our preview for tonight's game right here. Stay tuned to House That Hank Built for any updates or further delays.
