Today's May 17, 2011 game was postponed due to forecast of rain. After spending about 30 hours of rain delays in June 2009, I was greatly appreciative early call by the Nationals. Unfortunately, the $2 game day turned out to be a clear afternoon and game could have been played.
There is no word as to rescheduling of game, but the Pittsburgh Pirates return to DC for a July 1-3 series. See press release below re tickets.
