PHILADELPHIA (AP) -

Kyle Kendrick has to wait an extra day to start another home opener.

The Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers enjoyed an unexpected day off Monday without having to sit around in their uniforms and wait through rain delays. A gloomy forecast forced postponement of their game 25 hours before the scheduled start.

When the teams meet Tuesday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park, Kendrick (0-0) will face former Phillies pitcher Kyle Lohse (0-1). It'll be Kendrick's second straight start in the home opener.

Kendrick says: "The fans are going to be excited and I'm looking forward to it."
