Finger issue forces Vince Velasquez from Phillies' 10-0 loss to Mets

San Francisco Giants' Gorkys Hernandez, right, steals second against Washington Nationals shortstop Wilmer Difo (1) during the fourth inning of the first baseball game of a split doubleheader, Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, in Washington. The 2015 National League MVP is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBI.

Jackson (3-2) gave up five hits before Brandon Kintzler took over and pitched a scoreless seventh. A moment of silence was observed before the game for the victims of the clash. This time, he was scheduled to start Friday, but the game was rained out and Stratton was bumped two days so Jeff Samardzija could pitch Saturday on normal rest.

Central Intelligence Agency chief says 'nothing imminent' in US-N.Korea standoff
North Korea, meanwhile, has threatened to launch a rocket at the waters near the US territory of Guam some 21,000 miles away. He said the United States has a "pretty good idea" of North Korea's intentions, but he declined to provide specifics.

Giants players were already in street clothes talking to family and friends and walking toward the team buses before the game was announced as postponed.

While Harper's loss is a blow to the Nationals' lineup, it's certainly not the worst-case scenario for their star hitter.

Gorakhpur hospital deaths: No child died of oxygen shortage:Yogi
Rajeev Rautela said,"The doctors said alternative arrangements for oxygen cylinders were made to deal with the emergency".

As the 24-year-old was running out a ground ball to the right of the infield, he avoided contact with first baseman Ryder Jones before his left foot slipped.

His first start, he was a late sub for Johnny Cueto. On the other side, the Nationals are 5-1 in their last six games overall, are 5-1 in their last six home games, and are 16-6 in their last 22 games versus National League West opponents. Goodwin stole second, and - after a missed a sign - Bryce Harper doubled off the wall with first base open and Ryan Zimmerman on deck. "I'm very optimistic that he'll be at least fine shortly", Baker said. The good thing is he's young and strong. Should the knee injury necessitate a trip to the disabled list, it'll be his first stint on the DL since undergoing thumb surgery in 2014.
