Red Sox-Orioles Game At Fenway Park Postponed; Doubleheader Saturday

1,121

Friday’s Boston Red Sox-Baltimore Orioles game at Fenway Park has been postponed because of incoming Tropical Storm Arthur.

Telvent DTN, the Red Sox’s professional weather service, said there will be heavy rain storms throughout the day, and The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Boston and southern New England.

Friday’s matchup has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 5, at 1:05 p.m. as part of a day-night doubleheader, and Jon Lester will pitch for the Red Sox. Tickets for Friday’s game will be good for admission to Saturday’s first game.

The second game is scheduled to start at 7:15 p.m., with John Lackey taking the hill for Boston.

Lester will match up with Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez, and Lackey will take on Ubaldo Jimenez.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
