Lee pushed back as Phillies adjust rotation
PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies adjusted their starting rotation because of postponements from Hurricane Irene.

Roy Halladay will pitch Saturday afternoon against the Marlins. Cole Hamels will start Monday at Cincinnati, followed by Cliff Lee on Tuesday. Lee was originally scheduled to pitch Sunday, then was going to pitch the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader when Sunday's game was postponed.

"I prefer to throw every five days, no doubt about it," said Lee, who will be pitching on eight days' rest. "But when you got this many quality pitchers that we got, it's hard to skip someone and screw up everyone else's routine to keep me on a regular day. That's not gonna happen."
