WASHINGTON (AP) – The start of the Washington Nationals’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks has been delayed by 20 minutes because of the earthquake that rattled the East Coast.

 

The team said Tuesday night the first pitch would be at 7:25 p.m.

 

The Nationals had delayed opening the gates to check the stadium for damage before letting fans in.

The gates were opened at 6:40 p.m., 25 minutes before the scheduled start.

 

Parts of the White House, Capitol and Pentagon were evacuated after the magnitude-5.8 quake, which was centered 40 miles northwest of Richmond, Va.
