— The Nationals’ game with the Rockies was called off on Wednesday night after rain postponed the start of it by nearly two hours.

On Thursday, Jason Bergmann will face Jeff Francis in the first game (scheduled for 3:05 EDT) and Odalis Perez matches up with Ubaldo Jimenez in the second game, which will begin 25 minutes after the first one ends.
