Tarp on field, game will be delayed

By Kieran Darcy

Rain isn't falling in the Bronx yet, but the tarp was just pulled onto the field here at Yankee Stadium, about 15 minutes prior to the scheduled first pitch of the Yankees-Red Sox series finale. Strong thundershowers are reportedly on their way, and the game will be delayed. As soon as we have more information, we'll let you know.

8:20 p.m. update: The tarp has been pulled back off the field, and first pitch is now scheduled for approximately 8:50 p.m. It did not rain here.
