The rain is coming, and Boston’s quick-working ace will try to beat it.

If you thought Fenway Park was sloppy last night during last night’s tragedy of errors, one which saw the Sox (18-17) fall to the Rays (18-20), today’s weather wants to do you one better. Thanks to showers in the forecast, the game scheduled for tonight has been moved up to 1:05 p.m. (NESN).

Thankfully for the Red Sox, Chris Sale (1.92 ERA) will be on the hill against the most prolific whiffers in the league, with glove-capable Deven Marrero playing third base. Sale will be matched by Blake Snell (3.96 ERA). Here are the full lineups:
