The Indians game against the Chicago White Sox was delayed twice by rain for a total of two hours and 39 minutes Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field.
It was stopped at 9:49 p.m. EDT with the White Sox leading 1-0 in the top of the fourth inning. It resumed at 11:47 p.m. EDT, a total of 1:58.
The scheduled 8:10 p.m. EDT start was delayed 41 minutes by approaching rain in the area. First pitch came at 8:51 EDT.
After play began, it began raining steadily when the Indians batted with one out in the top of the third.
In the bottom of that inning, Tribe third baseman Mike Aviles twice made animated gestures towards the third base umpire wondering why the game was not being halted. As water pooled around his base, Aviles did not charge a grounder off the bat of Alexei Ramirez, letting it go for a single.
Right-hander Mark Lowe came on for the Indians in relief of starter Justin Masterson in the fourth inning. The night is also done for White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, who did not allow a hit and walked only one in his three innings. He was relieved by right-hander Scott Carroll.
Masterson gave up one run on four hits, while walking two and striking out three.
