Wednesday’s lineups: Tigers at Nationals

nationalmall050813As you can see from the photo, the weather was fantastic in Washington this morning. It is not supposed to be nearly as great tonight. Whether it’s going to rain looks like a 50-50 chance at game time. Any rain, however, is expected to be scattered, so there should be some sort of window of dry weather to at least start the game.

(Update at 7:25pm: Nationals have announced that grounds crew is aiming for an 8pm start.)

Lineups remain the same.
