Game and Meteorological Summary edited with file from Eric Abboud
A wave of lightning and rain enveloped Christie Pits this evening and forced the cancellation of the Mosquito Division nightcap game between the Rays and Red Sox after 1 ½ innings of play.
Here are the highlights:
- The Rays and Red Sox game got called after 1.5 innings. With lightning visible over the horizon, everyone scattered to avoid the incoming rain.
- Red Sox starter Noah (8) struck out the side in the top of the first to keep the Rays off the scoresheet and in the aquarium.
- In the bottom of the first, Lucas (11) led off with a walk and eventually came home to score the Red Sox lone run of the inning when Justin (10) drew a bases loaded walk.
- Red Sox reliever Sasha (6) went to the mound in the top of the second and found himself mired in a bases loaded jam. After surrendering a run, Sasha struck out the next two Rays batters before allowing two more runs. The final out was recorded by Red Sox first baseman Myles (9), who made a solid catch on a mile high pop up.
- Just as the Red Sox were preparing to start a rally in the bottom of the second, lightning was seen and the game called after 1 ½ innings of play with the Rays leading 3-1.
