BOSTON -- Winners of three in a row, the Boston Red Sox were hoping to continue their good fortune against the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night at Fenway Park, but Mother Nature had a different plan.
Because of inclement weather, the game was postponed and will be made up as part of a day/night doubleheader on Wednesday. The first game will begin at 1:35 p.m. with the nightcap scheduled for 7:10. Tickets for the postponed game can be used for Game 2.
“At the minimum it’s a long day of baseball,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. “Hopefully it won’t be a real long day.”
But the forecast for Wednesday doesn’t look promising.
“The weather is what it is, so we’ll show up and play when they allow us,” Francona said.
