MLB: St. Louis at Washington, ppd.

The finale of a four-game series between the Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals at Washington Sunday was postponed because of rain.

No makeup date has been announced, but the clubs are scheduled to play a three-game series at St. Louis Aug. 28-30.

The Cardinals, whose 17-8 mark equaled the LA Dodgers for the NL's best record before Sunday's contests, won two of the three games that were played at Nationals Park this weekend.

The Nationals beat St. Louis 6-1 Saturday but have the worst record in Major League Baseball at 6-17.
