Friday night’s game between the Milwaukee Brewers and host Washington Nationals was postponed due to inclement weather.

The contest will be made up Saturday as part of a split doubleheader. It will start at 2:05 p.m. ET with the regularly scheduled game slated to start at approximately 7 p.m.

Nationals manager Davey Martinez said that left-handers Jon Lester and Patrick Corbin will pitch the games but he doesn’t yet know the order.

“I want to talk to Lester and Corbin both, and if either one of them have a preference, then we’ll go from there,” Martinez told reporters.

Lester and Anderson were the scheduled Friday starters.
