The Red Sox series final against the Marlins at Fenway Park on Sunday was postponed due to bad weather, the team announced on Sunday afternoon
The game was originally scheduled to start at 1:10 p.m. EST, but the first pitch was delayed to around 12:49 p.m. due to rainy conditions in the Fenway area.
Shortly after 1:30 p.m. the game was abandoned, meaning the Sox and Marlins will have to call the final of this three-game set at a later date. No official makeup date has been scheduled at this point.
With Sunday’s contest postponed, the Red Sox will board a flight to Houston for the start of a two-city, seven-game road trip that begins Monday afternoon.
Southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez, who was scheduled to play against Miami on Sunday, will now start in the first of four against the Astros at Minute Maid Park on Memorial Day. He will be followed by right-hander Garrett Richards and Nick Pivetta and left-hander Martin Perez.
On a rather miserable weekend in Boston regarding the weather, the Red Sox managed to win the first two games of their series with the Marlins to move up to 32-20 this season.
They currently sit half a game away from the Tampa Bay Rays (33-20) for first place in the Eastern American League as they prepare to embark on one of their toughest times of the year in which they will face the Astros and Yankees 10. times over the next 11 days.
