Monday night in Cincinnati was one of the few times fans were thankful for a rain delay.
A passing storm halted a game between the Reds and Chicago Cubs for roughly 20 minutes, but its aftermath produced some of the coolest images of this baseball season.

The action on the field was almost as beautiful for Reds fans. Leadoff man Billy Hamilton tripled and drove in a career-high four runs in a 9-3 win for the home team.
