Saturday's game between the Rays and the Red Sox has been changed to 1:05 p.m. ET because of expected lengthy periods of rain in the Boston area from Saturday evening into Sunday, with temperatures in the 40s.
The two clubs consulted with Major League Baseball, and the three parties agreed that moving the game from its originally scheduled 7:10 p.m. ET start time would offer the best chance to get the contest in that day.
The starting pitchers for the game will remain the same, with Boston's Chris Sale slated to face Tampa Bay's Blake Snell.
Those who purchased tickets to the originally scheduled game will be able to use the same tickets for the afternoon contest.
