After waiting out a massive storm that included tornado sirens in the area around Busch Stadium, the Cardinals finally postponed tonight’s game against the Nationals and scheduled a day-night doubleheader for tomorrow.
The two teams will play the makeup game at 2:15 p.m. EDT. The nightcap will begin as originally scheduled at 8:15 EDT.
John Lannan, tonight’s scheduled starter, will pitch the opener against Jake Westbrook. Jordan Zimmermann faces Jaime Garcia in Game 2.
This will be the Nationals’ second consecutive doubleheader. After Saturday’s game against the Brewers was rained out, they swept Milwaukee Sunday afternoon.
