San Francisco Giants, Washington Nationals rained out, will play two Saturday

WASHINGTON -- The San Francisco Giants' game at the Washington Nationals on Thursday night was postponed because of 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 supposed to be the first game at Nationals Park since the 2019 World Series without capacity limits.

The rainout was rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader of seven-inning games on Saturday at 2:05 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.


Giants: Manager Gabe Kapler said LHP Caleb Baragar (left elbow inflammation) is close to returning. OF Mike Yastrzemski (right thumb sprain) and C Curt Casali (left wrist sprain) could come off the 10-IL Saturday or Sunday.


Giants: RHP Anthony DeSclafani (5-2, 3.51) starts Friday. He has allowed three or fewer earned runs in 15 consecutive road starts.

Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (5-4, 2.22 ERA) is 4-5 with a 3.86 ERA in 10 starts against the Giants.
