Monday's Braves-Nationals game postponed, rescheduled for spit doubleheader Tuesday

Tonight's Nationals-Braves game scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., has been postponed due to the tragic events that occurred earlier today.

The team will play a split doubleheader on Tuesday, September 17 with tonight's make-up game beginning at 1:05 p.m. The second regularly scheduled game will begin at 7:05 p.m. All gates for the originally scheduled 7:05 p.m. game will open 1.5 hours after the last out of the 1:05 p.m. game or 6:00 p.m., whichever is later.* The two games against the Braves on September 17 will require separate admission.

Those unable to attend the 1:05 p.m. game on September 17 can exchange their tickets for any remaining home game during the 2013 regular season or any Value Game during the 2014 regular season.
