Monday night's game between the Nationals and Braves in Washington, D.C. has been postponed.

There was a mass shooting Monday morning at the U.S. Navy Yard, adjacent to the Nationals' home stadium, that left 12 people dead. Calling the game was the right decision, even if no threat remains in the area. Dan Haren was scheduled to pitch for the Nats and Mike Minor was on tap for the visiting Braves. There will be a split doubleheader on Tuesday.
