The Rays said in a statement that "a failure of a main switch into the building caused the outage."

New York led 3-1 at the time of the delay. Estrada homered on the second pitch from Pruitt after play resumed.
"I've never been through something like that,'' Estrada said through an interpreter. "You've just got to keep your mind in a positive state.''
With the victory, New York closed within a half-game of the first-place Rays in the AL East.
