Nationals Top Dodgers 4-0 After 197-minute Delay

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Anthony Rendon hit a two-run homer in the first inning Monday night, and - thanks to an odd-moving storm that produced an interminable rain delay - the Washington Nationals didn't finish off the Los Angeles Dodgers until some six hours later on Tuesday morning, holding on for a 4-0 victory and gaining sole possession of first place in the NL East.

Jordan Zimmerman pitched four shutout innings before the game was halted, and five relievers threw an inning apiece after play resumed. In between, there was a delay of 3 hours, 17 minutes while a narrow, cigar-shaped storm took its time soaking D.C. and not much else.

As it was, Aaron Barrett (2-0) got the win, Zack Greinke (5-1) got a hard-luck first loss of the season and Danny Espinosa added a two-run homer in the eighth.
