The Nationals and Marlins will play a split doubleheader on Sept. 26 to make up their Tuesday game that was postponed due to rain.

The team made the announcement on Thursday, setting the makeup game for 1:05 p.m. that day. The teams will then play their second game at 7:05 p.m., as originally scheduled.

The two games will require separate admission, with the first including an exchange policy for those who had tickets to Tuesday’s game. The Nationals will accept any ticket purchased for May 27 at the gate for the 1:05 p.m. game on Sept. 26. Those patrons also have the option of trading those tickets in for any remaining ‘regular or value’ game in 2014.

Those with electronic season ticket cards  who had tickets for Tuesday will have their account automatically activated for Sept. 26. The weekend will now hold a four-game series to end the regular season schedules for both teams.

    you just know that the game will have more significance for the Marlins than the Nats, who knows, MW may be canned by then

    You have to give MW a mulligan until he gets a semblance of his team back. I don’t know how any team would do without the heart of it’s order for 2 months. MW may end up being a good manager or a bad manager or somewhere in between but it’s not fair to judge him now.

    On another note, I’ll bet you a cold one of your choice that Miami finishes the year at least 3-4 games behind the Nats. I doubt it will be that close.

    By September 26 will be looking back on this as the darkest part of the season, or do we have vfurther to slide facing the Rangers? I hope they’re going to suck it up and win a few of these close games in a row, but I’m having a hard time imagining how that happens. I think giving Souza a chance to shake things up until Harper comes back is worth a shot.

    Watching McLouth’s averages inch up, one hot game after another, really shows how deep he was buried during April.

    Despite hitting .182, McLouth has the 3rd highest OBP on the team at .321. Better than Rendon (.311) and Span (.306) and only behind Werth (.369) and LaRoche (.412).

    Dang, I have tix for the 27th game. Was hoping for a back to backer!
