Braves, Nationals will try to get game in after Saturday washout

WASHINGTON -- Rain washed out the middle game between the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals on Saturday and threatens to claim Sunday's affair as well.

No makeup date was announced. Given that rain is forecast, the teams won't try to play a doubleheader Sunday, hoping to at best to play the scheduled game at 1:35 p.m. ET.

Both teams opted to skip Saturday's starters -- Atlanta's Sean Newcomb (8-5, 3.51 ERA) and Washington's Gio Gonzalez (6-6, 3.72) -- and stick with Sunday's scheduled pitchers. That means All-Stars Mike Foltynewicz (7-5, 2.66 ERA) of the Braves and Max Scherzer (12-5, 2.41) of the Nationals.
