Red Sox-Blue Jays game postponed, will be made up in Toronto


BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The game between the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday was postponed because of thunderstorms.

It will be made up as part of a doubleheader August 7 in Toronto.

The teams conclude their series Wednesday. It will be the last of 23 major league games played this season at Buffalo’s Sahlen Field, home of the Blue Jays’ Triple-A affiliate. The Blue Jays will return to Toronto for a homestand beginning July 30 after the Canadian government granted the team an exemption to the U.S.-Canada travel ban.

Toronto entered Tuesday in third place in the AL East, seven games behind first-place Boston. The Red Sox won 13-4 on Monday.

Red Sox right-hander Garrett Richards (5-5, 4.91 ERA) was scheduled to start Tuesday against Blue Jays right-hander Thomas Hatch, who was to make his season debut.

Right-hander Tanner Houck (0-2, 3.38) was scheduled to start for the Red Sox on Wednesday against Blue Jays left-hander Robbie Ray (8-4, 2.93).

TRAINER’S ROOM

Blue Jays: Top prospect RHP Nate Pearson (groin) has resumed throwing and could join the bullpen before season’s end, general manager Ross Atkins said. … OF Corey Dickerson (foot) participated in batting practice Monday and will be assigned for rehab soon, Atkins said. Dickerson was acquired from the Marlins in a June 29 trade. … RHP Alex Manoah (back) is expected to miss only one start and return to the rotation Monday when he comes off of the 10-day injured list, Atkins said.

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale (Tommy John surgery) was scheduled to pitch three or four innings Tuesday in his second rehab start for Double-A Portland.
