Nats Rained Out Again; Doubleheader Sunday

Thanks to the ceaseless rain that has hit the DC area, the second consecutive Nationals game has been postponed.

This game had been scheduled to be against the Twins, and will be made up as a part of a doubleheader on Sunday. Gio Gonzalez, who had been scheduled to start today, will start Saturday. Jordan Zimmermann will start the first game of the doubleheader and Nate Karns will start the second. Since there will be a doubleheader, this postponement does not affect the date on which the Nationals will need a starter to replace Stephen Strasburg.
