The Red Sox started their game against the Royals late on Wednesday after thunderstorms rolled through Boston, and the lightning continued above Fenway Park throughout Wednesday’s game.

A photo taken by Jim Davis of the Globe during the game (pictured above) captured lightning above the Coca-Cola sign. Twitter user Bri Marie D took video of lightning repeatedly flashing across the sky during the game as well.

The Red Sox went into a rain delay in the bottom of the sixth inning.

When the game was postponed, the Red Sox led 5-2. J.D. Martinez had the big hit — a three-run homer to center in the third inning that got the scoring started.

The Red Sox ultimately prevailed in the game, 6-2.
