Rays-Yankees game under a power delay



Update 9:08 p.m. The lights came back on and the Rays are warming up, with the game to resume shortly.


Developing: The Rays-Yankees game has been delayed with two outs in the top of the sixth due to an apparent power issue, as a couple sets of lights went off at 8:53 p.m due to a lightning strike.

Rays RHP Alex Cobb was pitching to Yankees 2B Robinson Cano when the lights flickered, and the scoreboard temporarily went off. Both Rays manager Joe Maddon and Yankees manager Joe Girardi conferred with umpires before the players were brought off the field and back into the dugout.
