The Seattle Mariners will have to wait one more day before they try to continue their current eight-game winning streak.

Rost: 5 Mariners takeaways from talking to MLB insiders, team

The Mariners’ series opener Tuesday in Washington, D.C., against the Nationals was postponed due to weather. A severe thunderstorm moved through the area around the scheduled 7:05 p.m. Eastern scheduled start time, with the game being called off after about an hour delay as lightning continued to strike nearby.

To make up the game, the M’s and Nats will play a split doubleheader Wednesday. Game 1 will start at 9:05 a.m. Pacific time (the originally scheduled time for Wednesday’s series finale), with the nightcap set for 3:05 p.m.

Both games will air live on Seattle Sports Station 710 AM, and the Seattle Sports app. Coverage of Game 1 will begin at 8 a.m. with the pregame show, and the pregame show for Game 2 will start at 2 p.m.

Mariners rookie All-Star Julio RodrĂ­guez will serve his one-game suspension stemming from a brawl with the Angels last month in the opener of the doubleheader but will be eligible to play in Game 2. The twinbill will also see Jesse Winker return for Seattle from his own suspension related to the same brawl.

The M’s will have a quick turnaround after the doubleheader as they will hear to Texas for a four-game set against the Rangers that begins at 5:05 p.m. Thursday. That series will take both teams into the MLB All-Star break.

Salk: This trade deadline for M’s is different – it’s time to buy

Date Starting Pitcher
Tuesday, August 9 @ 7:10 pm Mariners' Luis Castillo vs. Yankees' Gerrit Cole
