The game was scheduled to start at 8:05 p.m. ET, but Red Sox officials made the decision to postpone it shortly after 3 p.m. While a makeup game has not yet been scheduled, tickets for Sunday's game will be good for admission to that game.
The weather forecast called for rain showers in the area to increase in intensity throughout Sunday afternoon and evening hours and remain steady into Monday afternoon, the Red Sox said in announcing the postponement.
This forecast also includes high winds and cold temperatures and a flood watch is in effect for Boston and Suffolk County through noon on Monday, the Red Sox said.
The Yankees now head to Texas for a three-game series starting on Monday night against young lefty Derek Holland. Huroki Kuroda was scheduled to start on Monday, but it's likely that CC Sabathia will take the ball and push the entire rotation back a day.
The Red Sox take off for a three-game set in Minnesota, with the first game Monday night at 8:10 ET. Either Daniel Bard or Jon Lester are in line for the start against Jason Marquis and the Twins.
