After an absolutely embarrassing loss on Saturday, somehow arguably the worst loss of a season that has been filled with dreadful ones, Boston and Texas were set up for a rubber match in what is really a must-win series for the Red Sox. At least it feels that way. However, neither side will get a win on Sunday as the weather had some other ideas. With Tropical Storm Henri getting set to make landfall in New England and Sunday and pour rain down on the region for pretty much the entire day, the Red Sox wasted no time to announce Sunday’s game has been postponed. The two sides will make up the game on Monday at 1:10 PM ET.

The game has been rescheduled for Monday, Aug 23, at 1:10 p.m. Tickets for Sunday’s game will be good for admission to the rescheduled contest.
After making five errors on Saturday night, perhaps a day off on Sunday is not the worst thing in the world. We should still see Nathan Eovaldi taking on Kolby Allard, though nothing is official. Boston stays at home after this series, welcoming the Twins into town for a three-game set this week, but Texas will be traveling to Cleveland, which presumably explains why this game is still being played in the afternoon.
