Today’s game will be played in the shadow of the tragic death of Jose Fernandez and two of his friends as the baseball family mourns this loss of life at an age much too young to leave us.
The Marlins have cancelled their game today, but the rest of the teams will play as scheduled with a moment of silence.
A.J. Cole will start for the Nationals today, and Tyler Glasnow will pitch for the Pirates.
