PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Philadelphia Phillies will begin their march back to the World Series Friday on Opening Day against the Atlanta Braves after falling short in the 2023 season. Forecasted rain forced the Phils to move the game back a day.

Zack Wheeler, who recently signed a contract extension, will get the start for the Phillies against Braves right-hander Spencer Strider.

With the game -- a rematch of last year's National League Division Series -- likely being the hottest ticket in town Friday, tickets are sold out on the Phillies' website. 

But there are plenty of other third-party options to get tickets to Friday's opener. Here's how to purchase tickets for the Phillies' home opener against the Braves, which begins at 3:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park. 

How to get tickets for Phillies-Braves Opening Day

Because tickets are sold out on the Phillies' website, fans will have to buy them through third-party sites. 

At the time of publication, Gametime has the cheapest tickets at $93, with StubHub next at $106. SeatGeek has tickets listed for as cheap as $110. Ticketmaster is at $128. 

Phillies, Braves Opening Day history

Friday will be the 33rd time the Phillies and Braves meet on Opening Day, dating back to 1888. The series is tied at 16 after one of the games ended in a tie in 1924 due to the darkness. 

Friday's game will be the fourth Opening Day between the two teams in the past seven seasons.

Weather for Opening Day at Citizens Bank Park

The weather turned out to be a factor, forcing the Phillies to move their home opener from Thursday to Friday. The weather forecast for Friday looks a lot better for baseball. Temperatures will climb into the mid-upper 50s with plenty of sunshine - the only issue would be breezy conditions. Winds are expected to be out of the northeast at around 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.
