UPDATE: The Nationals are trying to start the game at 5:05 p.m.

The Nationals and Diamondbacks were supposed to start today at 4:05, but the tarp is on the field and the Nationals have announced a delay. No word yet on when first pitch might come. When it does, Stephen Strasburg will Patrick Corbin as the Nationals go for their first series sweep since they took three from the White Sox on April 11.

We’ll keep you posted on a possible start time. Once it starts, talk about the game right here.
