- The Washington Times - Sunday, April 15, 2007

The Nationals-Mets series finale is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. today. Not that anyone on either side expects to actually play it.

A big storm is headed to the New York area and isn’t supposed to let up until tomorrow. Forecast for New York City: 43 degrees, 30 mph winds, 100 percent chance of precipitation. In other words, there is zero chance that it won’t rain.

Because today is Jackie Robinson Day around baseball, the Mets would like to play the game. But if the forecast is even close, look for this game to be postponed and for the Nationals to head home.

And if they do try to play the game at Shea?

“It’s not going to be pretty,” manager Manny Acta said.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Nationals have been outscored by the opposition in every inning this season except for the ninth. They have scored four runs in their final at-bat, while the opposition has scored three.

TODAY’S GAME

Nationals LHP Matt Chico (0-1, 7.27) at Mets RHP John Maine (1-0, 1.54), 1:10 p.m., MASN, AM-1500, FM-107.7.
