During an extended rain delay Wednesday at Nationals Park, a streaker made himself at home ... in an unlikely place.
After the grounds crew had rolled out the tarp to cover the infield diamond during a Nationals-Reds game that was suspended, a streaker ran on the field and onto the infield tarp and slid head first toward the large tarp roller and hid inside.
The tarp roller resembles a large tube or tunnel and the streaker crawled in, where he remained for several moments before he came out and was arrested.
The streaker had entered the field through center field, which prompted security to chase him.
The game will resume Thursday afternoon, with Washington holding a 3-0 lead. Then after the conclusion of that game, the series finale will be a seven-inning game that is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. ET.
