It was a beautiful Sunday morning in Jupiter, Florida for the spring training game between the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals. Unfortunately, the dark clouds rolled in and the skies opened during the top of the fifth inning. The Nats were leading 1-0 over the reigning World Series Champs when the game was finally called after a long rain delay.
Washington Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez was on the mound and had another strong outing. Veteran Jake Westbrook started for the Cardinals and Matt Holliday was back in the line up.
Here are a few photos before the rain fell. Click on the images to enlarge. Hope you enjoy them. Please feel free to leave comments. I always appreciate feedback. Thanks!
