Michael Morse's name was in the lineup. Nats' right-hander Jordan Zimmermann was set to go for his 11th win of 2012. The Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers were ready to play the first game three in Washington, D.C., but inclement weather has apparently changed those plans. Tonight's game has been postponed. According to reports from the nation's capital, the two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow at 4:00 pm EDT and 7:05 pm EDT with Jordan Zimmermann likely to start game one and John Lannan expected to go for the Nats in the nightcap. Nats' skipper Davey Johnson told reporters that because there are no days off the rest of the way the Nationals will need an extra starter for the third game of four with the Milwaukee Brewers this Sunday with Washington Times' writer Amanda Comak quoting the skipper saying it could be someone like Craig Stammen, Zach Duke or Chien-Ming Wang, who impressed Johnson in a bullpen session during the last homestand in Nationals Park.

• In case you missed the news earlier this afternoon, the Nationals received fairly good news this afternoon when they learned that Nats' second baseman Danny Espinosa had an MRI which revealed a bone bruise in the shoulder capsule of his left shoulder but no further damage. The infielder received a cortisone shot and is listed as day-to-day now, but could return during the series with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Again, tonight's game postponed. Doubleheader at 4:00 and 7:00 pm EDT tomorrow...
