The Washington Nationals’ game Thursday night against the Atlanta Braves was delayed three hours for Buck Showalter’s least favorite kind of inclement weather: the invisible kind.
The National League East battle, set for a 7:05 p.m. start, was delayed for over an hour of clear skies (officially, “approaching weather”) before the tarp came out.
The tarp stayed dry for a while. Then it rained a little. Then it stopped. No fun was had.
