Despite rain and thunderstorms in the Boston area today and more rain expected later tonight, the Red Sox and Phillies were able to start tonight's game at 7:48 p.m. to open a three-game set at Fenway.
If tonight's game happens to get rained out before it is official, the teams are looking at Monday, an offday for both teams, as the day for a makeup game.
The National Weather Service is calling for periods of rain and thunderstorms tonight. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent.
