Tonight’s Red Sox-Blue Jays matchup has been postponed, after severe rain and weather conditions in Massachusetts and Boston.
The tarp was put on the field at roughly 6:15 p.m. EST, as there was a rain delay in place before the game was officially called.
The ballgame will be made up tomorrow afternoon, as part of a seven-inning doubleheader. First pitch of Game 1 will be played at 2:10 p.m. EST, as Garrett Richards will get the start after being scheduled to start tonight. Tanner Houck will take Game 2, as he was scheduled to do so.
The Red Sox weren’t the only ones that had their game cancelled, as Triple-A Worcester, Double-A Portland, and Single-A Greenville all had their games postponed. The only Red Sox minor-league team that is playing tonight is the Salem Red Sox, who are located in Virginia, the other Single-A club of the Red Sox.
Boston also announced that tickets from tonight’s game are still permittable for tomorrow’s game.
Here is the Red Sox’s official statement:
“Tonight’s Red Sox-Blue Jays game at Fenway Park has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, July 28, as the first game of a split, 7-inning doubleheader beginning at 2:10 p.m. The schedule change was made due to severe weather conditions in the Fenway area.”
“Tickets for tonight’s game (7/27) will be good for admission to the rescheduled contest. Fenway Park gates are expected to open 90 minutes before the 2:10 p.m. game (12:40 p.m.) and one hour before the regularly scheduled 7:10 p.m. game (6:10 p.m.).”
