The Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies were rained out Tuesday after a nearly two-hour delay, the teams’ second consecutive postponement. The game will be made up on Sept. 24 at 1:05 p.m. as part of a day-night doubleheader.
It was a novelty when Bryce Harper came to Nationals Park in early April for the first time as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. No novelties now. Just do-or-die for the Nationals, who were treading water this weekend even though they crushed Arizona 15-5 Sunday to salvage a four-game series split at Nationals Park.
