The Flyers expect more seats to be released during the day, spokeswoman Rebecca Goodman said.
Fans were urged to leave early, carpool, or use public transportation. SEPTA will run six Sports Express trains on the Broad Street Line between 6 and 7 p.m.
The weather could also add some misery for Phillies fans. Scattered light showers and thunderstorms are possible this evening, although the highest odds of rain seem to be for after 9 p.m., said meteorologist Kristin Kline of the National Weather Service.
Wednesday’s 7:05 p.m. Mets game might also see a rain delay or two, with a 70 percent chance of more scattered showers, and a chance for thunderstorms, Kline said.
Fans get a break for a few days after that, with clear skies, and the Sixers playoff game set for Thursday evening, a scheduled off day for the Phillies.

If the Flyers return home for a decisive Game 7, it would take place on Saturday. The time was yet to be determined, so it may not coincide with Saturday evening’s Phillies game against the Padres.
