Sept. 17 (UPI) -- The Washington Nationals held a moment of silence for victims of yesterday's Navy Yard shooting, and team members are wearing Navy hats on the field in support.

Last night's game against the Atlanta Braves was cancelled when a gunman killed 12 people in the Navy Yard. The Nationals will play a double-header today at Nationals Stadium in Washington, D.C.

The Braves can clinch the National League East title with just two wins. For Tuesday's double-header, Haren will start Game 1 against Braves lefty Mike Minor, while rookie Tanner Roark will face veteran Freddy Garcia in the night game.
