Weather update for Friday's Cub-Nationals game
|2018-09-07 18:55:21.0- -||
Tonight's game between the Cubs and Nationals has been delayed due to rain and thunderstorms in the area.
Both teams only have one off-day the same (9/13) for the rest of the season so they will probably try to fit this game in tonight regardless of the time. It might end up being a long night.
CubsHQ.com will keep you updated when we hear of tonight's new start time and when the tarp is off the field.
Saturday update: Saturday's doubleheader begins at 2:05 p.m. CT and the second game will start 45 minutes after the first game.
Update: 9:18 pm CT - -The game is still under a delay. Nationals posted the following message -- Inclement weather is still over the ballpark. Because the Cubs do not return to Nats Park this season, we are awaiting a decision from MLB regarding the resumption of this game. Thank you Nats fans for your patience.
Update: 6:53 pm CT -- The tarp is coming off the field and the new start time is 7:25 pm CT.
It should clear out within an hour or so but seems kind of late to pick up a game in the 2nd inning. Waited this long though— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) September 8, 2018
Rain is coming down in sheets. Thunder is drowning out conversations. And scheduled game time less than 20 minutes away.— Gordon Wittenmyer (@GDubCub) September 7, 2018
Nats official: "Attention, media. The game is currently delayed by inclement weather."
So we're about a half hour from game time and it's still pouring and the tarp is still on, so I feel safe saying this game will not start on time.— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) September 7, 2018
