San Francisco Giants’ game at Washington Nationals was postponed due to rain
WASHINGTON – The San Francisco Giants’ game Thursday night at the Washington Nationals was postponed due to rain.
The game was called less than an hour before the scheduled start. The tarp remained over the infield on the night of what was to be the first game in the National Park since the 2019 World Series without a capacity limit.
The rain was rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader of seven-inning games at 2:05 pm and 7:15 pm on Saturday.
Giants: Manager Gabe Kapler said LHP Caleb Bargar (swelling of left elbow) is close to returning. OF Mike Yastrzemsky (right thumb sprain) and C Kurt Casali (left wrist sprain) can leave the 10-il on Saturday or Sunday.
Giants: RHP Anthony Descalafoni (5-2, 3.51) starts Friday. He has allowed three or fewer earned runs in 15 consecutive road starts.
National: RHP Max Scherzer (5-4, 2.22 ERA) is 4-5 with 3.86 ERA in 10 starts against the Giants.
