Nationals Vs. Reds: Game To Begin After Lengthy Delay

After a delay of nearly four hour, the Washington Nationals and Cincinnati Reds will finally get to play on Sunday, as the Reds have just announced that the game will get underway at 4:45 p.m. ET.

Edwin Jackson and Bronson Arroyo are still slated to be the starting pitchers, and no changes have been made to the two teams' lineups.

Since the teams only had one common off-day the rest of the year on September 13, Reds officials wanted to do everything they could to get the game played today, leading to the lengthy delay.
