Fans were hoping for some lights out baseball Friday night when two of the National League’s best squared off in the nation’s capital.
And that’s what they got. Literally.
Three times in as many hours, the game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Washington Nationals was suspended due to a series of power outages. At the time of the actual game suspension, the Nationals were leading 3-2 through five innings.
“They were having some talks about breakers and things and computer glitches,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “It was over my head. Hopefully, tomorrow, it’s not a factor.”
While no one has given an official reason for the suspension of play (the game will resume Saturday), pitcher Max Scherzer thinks he knows what (or who) might be the culprit.
Well who was the last one to use Nationals Park last? Taylor Swift.. I blame her for the power outs tonight. We now have #BadBlood

Be careful, Max…you don’t want to be the subject of an upcoming song.
