The Major League Baseball schedule is grueling to say the least, so off days are a luxury when they rarely occur. Unfortunately for the Red Sox, Mother Nature just stole one from their grasps.

Boston’s series finale against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday was suspended in the 10th inning and is set to be completed on Aug. 22 at Fenway Park. Instead of an off day in San Diego, they’ll have to play extra innings.

“Yeah there’s a lot of people upset about that one,” manager Alex Cora said with a smile, as seen on NESN Red Sox postgame coverage. “It is what it is.”
