Even though no rain had yet fallen, Thursday night’s game between the Braves and Nationals began in a rain delay. Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte tweeted about it:

Of the 1,600-plus people to have liked that tweet at the time of this writing, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was among them.

The Rays also had some fun at the Nats’ expense:

The Nationals issued an updated statement shortly after 9:30 PM ET. Via MASN’s Mark Zuckerman:

This one sounds like it’s going to start well after 10 PM ET and it’ll probably finish close to 2 AM ET. Brings back memories of that Padres-Phillies game 24 years ago that ended just shy of 5 AM ET.
