Red Sox angry after 2 1/2-hour rain delay leads to postponement of game against Orioles

The Boston Red Sox were off to one of their best starts all season early in Wednesday night’s game. Andrew Benintendi, J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts each homered off Orioles starting pitcher Dylan Bundy before the top of the second inning wound down, putting Boston up 5-0.

As they have all week, the skies ripped open and chucked down heavy rain. Fans dispersed or huddled under the overhangs, players ventured down to their clubhouses and moats began to form along the dugouts and in right field.

Two hours and 33 minutes later, the game was called, all stats were vacated, and down in the visiting clubhouse, Red Sox manager Alex Cora was fuming.
