Phillies-Nationals Game 3 Postponed Due to Inclement Weather
The Phillies won again last night, notching their fifth consecutive victory and second straight against the Washington Nationals. They scored 12 runs, recorded 18 hits, and three home runs against the Nationals depleted pitching staff. The Phillies now sit just 2.5 games back of the Atlanta Braves in the NL East and 2.5 games back of the second NL Wild Card spot.
Momentum is riding high in the clubhouse right now, even after losing some big names due to injury and COVID-19. The Phillies were scheduled to play the series finale tonight against the Washington Nationals, but that will not be happening.
The Nationals announced this morning that due to inclement weather, tonight’s game will be postponed. The game will be made up on Thursday, September 2nd, at 1:05. Thursday was scheduled to be a travel day for the Phillies, but they will now close out the Washington series instead. They will hit the planes immediately following Thursday’s game and travel to Miami to start a series with the Marlins on Friday.
Bryce Harper is hitting like nobody else in this league, the offense is clicking, and everything is going right for this baseball team. With just one month left to go, The Hunt for Red October is in full force. Aaron Nola will take the hill in the series finale Thursday, looking to move past his previous September woes.
