WASHINGTON - The start of the Chicago White Sox game at the Washington Nationals was delayed because the umpires got caught in traffic.

The game, which was scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. EDT, started after a 16-minute delay Wednesday night.

The Nationals say the umpires' preparation for the game was delayed because of their late arrival at the ballpark.
