    The Washington Nationals game started on time, but rains halted action in the middle of the second inning with the score tied at 3-all.

    The game resumed around 6:15 p.m.

    Severe thunderstorm warnings are in effect for Culpeper, King George, Orange, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties, and the city of Fredericksburg. Many other weather alerts in Maryland and Virginia expired earlier in the evening.

    Doppler radar indicated a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds in excess of 60 mph. These storms were located on a line extending from near Fort Belvoir to 7 miles east of Popes Creek, and moving northeast at 50 mph.

    Periodic rain may continue this evening.
