I live less than 10 miles away from Nationals Park, and right now it’s not raining. Other fans, who are closer to the Park report the same thing.

Teams usually make every effort to play a game before deciding to cancel. Perhaps they didn’t hesitate because they had an available make-up day on Thursday. But maybe, just maybe, the Nationals thought Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth needed an extra day of rest.
If Justin Verlander were scheduled to pitch, the Nationals might have canceled the entire series.
