The Nats were set to take on the Braves at 7:05 Thursday night, but things didn't go as planned.
Due to an impending weather forecast, the Nats organization decided to delay the game until further notice.

Well, fast forward three hours and five minutes and Gio Gonzalez finally took the mound at 10:10 p.m. with very little rain having ever been in sight.
Fans at the game claimed they were never given any updates from the organization on an approximate time the game would resume until 9:50 p.m.. Many waited out what would be just over three long hours.
The Nats eventually offered those loyal, not wet, fans free ice cream, soda, water and admission back into the park for those who had left.
The saying goes, 'You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream', but these Nats and Braves fans took to Twitter to scream with anger.
Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte was scrolling through his Twitter timeline during the delay and couldn't understand what the hold up was for either.
One fan suggested the guys turn the tarp into a slip-and-slide and Inciarte said what fans were thinking,
The game did not end until around 1:30 a.m. and the Nats ended up losing 5-2. Many fans have posted on the Nats Facebook and Twitter pages to say they would not be returning for another game.
On Friday morning, the Nats realeased this statement in regards to the delay with no word of reimbursement of any type.
Watching Max Scherzrer rack up Ks during a game is a usual sight for fans.
Dancing is not.
On Wednesday while the Sports Junkies were broadcasting at Nats Spring Training in West Palm Beach, we got a taste of what the back-to-back Cy Young Award winner has to offer on the dance floor.
With just about a week left until their season kicks off, manager Dave Martinez hired a DJ for the day's workout, saying he wanted to "turn it up a notch."
Well he turned it up a few too many notches, causing the back end of the complex where the Junkies were broadcasting to lose power.
While the Junkies were put in a pickle because of said DJ, we were able to get a glance of Scherzer dancing to Drakes' "God's Plan."

It's nice to see the usually lazer-focused pitcher let loose.
While Scherzer's dance moves didn't actually cause the Junkies to lose power, it's nice to think they were too much for the ballpark to handle.

It's that wonderful time of year again — when baseball teams flock to warmer climates for spring training and the regular season is practically around the corner — and Bryce Harper is already killing it.
It took the Washington Nationals a few games to brush away their offseason cobwebs and get back into gear, but since the beginning of March, they're riding a five-game win streak as of Sunday the 4th.
They are 6-4-1 in spring training going into Monday's matchup against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Since Thursday, the Nats have taken down — in order — the Atlanta Braves, New York Mets, defending World Series champion Houston Astros, the Detroit Tigers and the Mets again. Sunday's 6-2 win against the Tigers was in large part thanks to Harper's bat, as the star of the team drilled his first home run of spring training.

Turn up the volume for this one because the sound of Harper's contact with the ball is just beautiful — and perhaps enough to get you pumped for the March 29 opener.
Harper blew this ball away in the bottom of the third for a two-run homer with Howie Kendrick on base. He also had a single in the fourth and finished the game with three RBI.
Gio Gonzalez was the winning pitcher for the Nats.
