Sunday’s contest between the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox will not take place as scheduled after rain at Fenway Park postponed Game 3 until Monday at 6:08 p.m. ET.
Game 4, originally planned for Monday at Fenway, has been moved to Tuesday (if necessary), while a potential Game 5 is still scheduled for Wednesday at Progressive Field.
Neither club will make changes on the mound for Tuesday’s rescheduled ALDSmatchup, as right-handers Josh Tomlin and Clay Buchholz will simply have their starts pushed back to Tuesday.
Sunday’s day off specifically benefits the Red Sox: The club would now be able to use Rick Porcello and David Price on regular rest in Games 4 and 5.
Cleveland leads the series 2-0.
It’s already the second game called off due to rain this postseason after the Los Angeles Dodgers and Washington Nationals saw Saturday’s Game 2 of their NLDS bumped to Sunday.
