Rain cools off red-hot Tampa Bay in Boston
“It’s OK. Patience is a virtue and all that other kind of stuff,” Rays manager Joe Maddon said Thursday night after his team, a half-game behind the Red Sox for the second time this week, was rained out of the series finale with Boston.
Tampa Bay’s Jeremy Hellickson and Boston’s John Lackey, scheduled to pitch Thursday, will now open their teams’ series tonight.
“It certainly beat the alternative,” he said. “We didn’t want to get into a start-and-stop situation, and if we didn’t get past an official game, does that cause us to lose John Lackey for the next four or five days? That, in addition to Monday being the best of all available alternatives for both sides, it seemed to make the most sense.”
The Red Sox have been in first place since May 27, but the teams are now even in the loss column.
