BOSTON – The Boston Red Sox-Miami Marlins game scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park was called off due to rain.
The decision was made after a delay of approximately 20 minutes. The game will be played on Monday, June 7 at 5:10 pm
On Friday, the Red Sox won 5-2 in a game that was canceled after five and a half innings due to heavy rain. Boston also won Saturday’s game, 3-1 in cold conditions and intermittent drizzle.
Saturday’s game marked the first time the Red Sox were allowed to full capacity after the state removed limits on crowd size during the pandemic. There was a paid attendance of 25,089, about half the stadium, due to the weather.
Boston has won the last nine games at Fenway and is 18-6 for life against the Marlins.
The forecast for Sunday afternoon called for steady rain late into the night and was not expected to subside until early Monday morning.
