Tonight’s game between the Nationals and Braves has been postponed due to severe weather in the area.
Details on a makeup date have not yet been announced, but I will obviously pass them along as soon as I hear anything.
Conditions in the area have been terrible tonight, and it’s been raining nearly nonstop for the last couple hours. There have been tornado warnings nearby, as well.
Update: Tonight’s game will not be made up during this homestand, and will instead be pushed back later in the season.
Manager Davey Johnson said August is a possibility for the rescheduled game. The Braves are scheduled to play three games at Nats Park from Aug. 20-22.
The Braves will make a rotation adjustment however; they’ll skip lefty Mike Minor, who was scheduled to start tonight, and will go with righties Brandon Beachy (Saturday) and Tommy Hanson (Sunday) for the shortened series.
