NATS PLAY 2 TODAY AFTER 12 COVID POSITIVES POSTPONE LAST NIGHT’S PHILS GAME

By Sam Bush

Four Nats players and eight staffers tested positive for COVID-19, which forced postponement of last night’s Phillies game.

It’ll be made up as part of a doubleheader starting at 12:05 p.m. today.

The postponement came one day after Nationals star Trea Turner exited the game against Philadelphia in the first inning following his positive test for the virus.

Washington manager Dave Martinez said Turner was among four players who tested positive. He didn’t identify the others.

“I’m just worried about the guys, I really am,” Martinez said. “It’s been a tough go; this doesn’t make it any easier.”
