4:27 rain delay

Another Bizarre Day for Nats Ends With WinThe Post
After waiting until 11:32 p.m. to get the game started, the Nationals, led by a resurgent Mike O’Connor, took out the Phillies 3-1 on Ryan Zimmerman‘s 22nd birthday. The loss puts the Fleas two back in the wild card race. An Inky columnist is very grouchy about the whole thing.

Both teams were adamant about getting the game in last night since it would have had to be made up Monday otherwise.

Fans were apparently entertained (nationals.com) during the delay. No word if Tom Paciorek did his Ray Romano/Cookie Monster impression over the p.a. though.
