BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays got in just 12 minutes of baseball before their game was postponed because of rain on Friday night.

The umpires called for the tarp with the bases loaded in the top of the first, with one out and a 1-0 count on Pat Burrell. The rain varied in strength but it was coming down heavy when the game was called at 9:48 p.m. after a delay of 2 hours, 20 minutes.

The teams will start fresh on Sunday at noon as part of a doubleheader, with Clay Buchholz facing Matt Garza. The regularly scheduled 1:35 game will be moved to 5 p.m.; Lester, who threw 23 pitches, will face James Shields, who warmed up on Friday but never made it to the mound.
