Wet night at Fenway?

Here we go again with the weather.

Fenway Park is open for business, but it could be a wet one with light showers during tonight’s game. The National Weather Service is calling for rain developing this evening in the Boston area with a chance of thunderstorms after midnight. The heaviest rain of the weekend is expected to fall on Saturday and Sunday.

Last night’s dramatic win at Yankee Stadium was the 12th come-from behind win of 2006 for the Sox, with each of the team’s last three victories coming in that fashion.

Closing in on 500: Red Sox skipper Terry Francona earned his 499th regular season victory as a major league manager on Thursday.


His first win came as manager of the Phillies on April 1, 1997. It was a 3-0 victory over the Dodgers in Los Angeles and current Red Sox ace Curt Schilling was the winning pitcher. Francona has a 499-507 record as a major league manager with the Phillies and Red Sox.
