NatCast: Rain threatens last home game of season

By Dan Stillman

* Our Full Forecast | Weather Wall | Nationals Journal *

updated at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Nationals vs. Phillies
Wednesday Sept. 29, 7:05 p.m., Nationals Park
First Pitch9th InningWeatherChance of Rain
6:00 p.m. update: May be a break from the rain -- at least for the early innings. So they might get this in. From earlier: Rain is likely during the game, but probably light to moderate as opposed to moderate to heavy. So, we'll have to wait and see if they call this one or try to give it a go. If this turns out to be the season's last NatCast, then so long and we'll see ya next year.

NatCast appears on the day of every Nationals home game. Also, if you haven't already, join us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

I always try to go to the last home game of the year, and if this game gets rained out, it will be two of the last three years that it happened. A couple of years back they waited until about 9:30 at night to call the game, because I think there were potential playoff implications for the other team. Tonight, they'll probably be a little quicker with the trigger . . .

don't they have to play all 162 games? so if tonight is rained out, wont they have to reschedule it? or will they just complete the season with only 161 played?

No, there's no requirement to play all 162. There are no playoff implications - the Phillies have already clinched home field throughout the playoffs.

No reason they wouldn't try and play this tomorrow if tonight's can't be played; both teams have off. They could even make it a night game

CWG, are there plans to update the NatsCast? It was lightly raining earlier in the day, now that looks to have stopped. I would love to know whether it is worth my time to go down there tonight.

@rbelleisle I have a ticket for tonight and was thinking the same thing, but tomorrow's weather is supposed to be even worse.

Just updated based on latest radar trends and model data.

CWG, you guys do great work, but I can't help but I admit I am happy your NatsCasts for Monday and Wednesday were inaccurate. We now get to remind the Braves how far from the playoffs they are after a big 7-1 win tonight.
