Rays, Red Sox Rained Out; Game Postponed

It has been raining all day in Boston, and although there were some reports that the forecast was supposed to momentarily clear up tonight from 7-9 PM, tonight’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox has been cancelled. It’s likely that even if there had been a momentary window without rain, the Rays and Sox couldn’t have gotten the entire game in.

The Rays are planning on simply sliding their pitchers back one day, so James Shields will start tomorrow against the Minnesota Twins, and will be followed over this weekend by Wade Davis, Jeff Niemann, and Jeremy Hellickson. The Rays face the Twins at home.

There is no word yet on when this game will be played, but the Rays and Red Sox don’t face again in Fenway until August. With the way the first two games of this series went, I’m sure the Red Sox are more than happy to wait to face the Rays again.
