Washington Nationals And Detroit Tigers Game Postponed Due To Inclement Weather

Greg Fiume

The Washington Nationals announced this afternoon that their game against the Detroit Tigers, which was scheduled for 7:05 pm EST tonight, has been postponed due to inclement weather and rescheduled for Thursday afternoon at 4:05 pm EST. Jordan Zimmermann will start vs Detroit tomorrow night instead.

The Washington Nationals announced within the last few minutes the tonight's game has been postdoned due to inclement weather. Rain in the nation's capital has resulted in the decision to play the game on Thursday at 4:00 pm EST instead since both teams had an off day in the schedule. The Nats made the announcement via Twitter:

Tonight's game was to feature a pitching matchup with streaking starters. Jordan Zimmermann's undefeated at home in his last fourteen starts. Tigers' starter Anibal Sanchez has never lost to the Nationals, a team he's faced 19 times so far in his career. According to the Nats, Zimmermann will start tomorrow night's game instead with Dan Haren going on Thursday afternoon:

There were a few notable items out of Nationals Park this afternoon. Jayson Werth wasn't in the lineup when it was announced, but according to Tweeted reports, he would have likely returned if not for concern about the condition of the field after a day of rain in D.C.:

Nats' skipper Davey Johnson also told reporters that 20-year-old slugger Bryce Harper would not be fined following his ejection from this past Sunday's series finale in Pittsburgh's PNC Park:

To repeat, the Washington Nationals and Detroit Tigers' game has been postponed due to inclement weather. Which means two straight days without any baseball. You will be okay. You're gonna be okay. Okay?
