Lights go out at Comerica Park, game briefly delayed

The starting pitching has been fantastic so far in the ALCS, but no one expected them to be so "lights out" that the actual lights would go out. But, here we are.

The stadium lights at Comerica Park went out after the top of the second, causing Game 3 to be delayed until they can power them back up. The reports seem to indicate that it will take somewhere between 15-20 minutes for the game to get going again.

It seems strange to delay a game because of lighting issues when the sun is still out, but it seems that the stadium seems much lighter on TV than it is in person:

In the meantime, starters Justin Verlander and John Lackey have gone back into their respective clubhouses to stay loose. When it picks back up, they'll have a scoreless tie heading into the bottom-half of the second.
