UPDATE: Play to resume at 5:55 after delay, Rays down 4-1



UPDATE, 5:25: The tarp is off and the game is expected to resume at 5:55.

UPDATE, 5:12: Red Sox officials are talking about possibly resuming the first game by 6:30 or 7, with the second game starting 45-60 minutes later. Rain seems to be letting up.

UPDATE, 5:02: No official updates, but there is some thought the rain will end in about 45 minuets and be done for the night. Also, the Rays have been told that per MLB rules the first game has to be played to completion or the second game can't be started. So that eliminates the scenario of the first game being called as official and the second being played; if they call the first game they have to reschedule the second game.

DEVELOPING: With the Rays losing 4-1 and Wil Myers 0-for-2 so far in his major-league debut, Tuesday's game is now in a rain delay in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Chris Archer, who was not sharp and walked 5, had just been replaced by Josh Lueke when light rain became heavy, causing the delay.

In Myers' first at-bat he came up with two on in the second and swung at the first pitch - after Sox start Alfedo Aceves had walked the previous two hitters - and popped to shallow center.

In Myers second at-bat, he came up with one out in the fourth and worked the count full but flied to right.

He did make one catch, grabbing a Jacoby Ellsbury fly out in the fifth.
