Game 1 of Nationals-Cardinals day-night doubleheader under way on MASN2

The first game of the Nationals and Cardinals series was postponed tonight after a storm system that produced tornado warnings swept through St. Louis. The two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow, with the first game starting at 2 p.m. Eastern time. The second game will start at the originally scheduled time (8 p.m.).

Nats Xtra will air both after the first game and then before Game Two as well.

John Lannan, who was supposed to pitch tonight for the Nationals, will face Jake Westbrook in Game 1 of the doubleheader. Jordan Zimmermann squares off against Jamie Garcia in Game 2.

It will be the second straight doubleheader the Nationals have played; they swept the Brewers in two games on Sunday after getting rained out on Saturday.

Both games will be televised on MASN2.
