Opener of Red Sox-Rays series postponed by rain
The opener of a four-game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays and was postponed yesterday after rain began in the afternoon. Temperatures were in the 30s with 20 mph winds. The game was rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader June 18.
Felix Doubront, who was scheduled to start for Boston last night, probably will start on Tuesday against the Indians in Cleveland. Manager John Farrell left the rotation for the rest of the series with the Rays intact, with Jon Lester starting today followed by Clay Buchholz and Ryan Dempster.
For Tampa Bay, Alex Cobb, who was scheduled to start last night, was pushed back to tomorrow. David Price will still start today as planned. Jeremy Hellickson is expected to start on Monday.
