    Jon Lester managed to pitch just one inning before the skies opened up in the game, but that didn't stop fans from poking fun at the absurdity of the situation: 

    After a delay that lasted several hours, the game was finally postponed just before 11 p.m., and was rescheduled for Saturday afternoon at 2:05 p.m.
