The Atlanta Braves’ scheduled Monday night home game against the San Diego Padres was postponed due to rain.

The teams will play a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday, with the first game beginning at 12:20 p.m. ET and the nightcap set for 5:20 p.m.

The Braves announced their scheduled Monday night starter, rookie left-hander Kyle Muller, would start on Tuesday, with right-hander Touki Toussaint and right-hander Charlie Morton starting Games 1 and 2, respectively, on Wednesday.

Toussaint came off the 60-day injured list on Friday after recovering from a strained shoulder.

It was not immediately clear whether San Diego’s Yu Darvish, who was slated to start on Monday, would be the Tuesday starter.

The Padres won two of three games at Washington over the weekend coming out of the All-Star break while the Braves dropped two of three at home against he Tampa Bay Rays.
