Orioles Vs. Red Sox: Game On After Rain Delay, Into Ninth Inning

While some American League fans watch extra innings in Tampa, waiting for a result in the Yankees vs. Rays game, the game between the Red Sox and Orioles at Camden Yards in Baltimore has resumed after a rain delay of one hour and 25 minutes.

When the game was delayed by a severe thunderstorm that blew through Baltimore, the Red Sox had a 3-2 lead over the Orioles in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Now the game is complete through eight innings with Boston still leading 3-2; Marco Scutaro attempted to score in the top of the eighth on a double by Carl Crawford, but was thrown out at the plate to keep Boston’s lead at just one run.

If the Red Sox hold on and win, they can do no worse than a one-game playoff for the American League Wild Card, which would be held Thursday in Tampa, if the Rays can defeat the Yankees.

What a night, and it’s not over yet.
