WASHINGTON — Game 2 of the NL Division Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals has been rained out.
Saturday’s game was postponed to 1:08 p.m. Sunday. The Dodgers lead 1-0 in the best-of-five matchup.
The rain had already washed out batting practice at Nationals Park. Rich Hill had been scheduled to start for Los Angeles against Tanner Roark.
Shortstop Danny Espinosa had been in the starting lineup for Washington, batting seventh after going 0 for 3 with three strikeouts in a Game 1 loss. Asked why he continues to stick with Espinosa, Nationals manager Dusty Baker asked: “Who else do I have?”
Baker’s only lineup change had been catcher Jose Lobaton replacing Pedro Severino. The Dodgers were set to go with the same eight position players who started Friday in a 4-3 win.
