Postponed date rescheduled as July 2 doubleheader

The Washington Nationals have rescheduled their postponed game

with the Pittsburgh Pirates as a part of a doubleheader on July


The game was originally scheduled for May 17 but was rained out.

The first game of the doubleheader will start at 3:35 p.m., with

the second game following at 7:05 p.m. or later, depending on the

conclusion of the opener. The traditional doubleheader will require

a single ticket for admission to both games.

Washington has already played a pair of doubleheaders this

season because of rainouts. The Nationals swept Milwaukee at home

on April 17, and split at St. Louis on April 20.
