Indians' game resumes after second delay

By Marla Ridenour Published: April 13, 2014

The Indians' game against the Chicago White Sox resumed after a second delay of 45 minutes Sunday, with starting pitcher Corey Kluber returning to the mound.

It stopped when a heavy downpour hit U.S. Cellular Field at 4:35 p.m. EDT and resumed at 5:20 EDT.

The start of the game was pushed back an hour and 15 minutes. It was scheduled to begin at 2:10 p.m. EDT.

The weather forecast for this afternoon calls for a 90 percent chance of thunderstorms due to a strong cold front. The temperature at U.S. Cellular Field dropped 20 degrees in the morning, with the chill noticeable during Indians manager Terry Francona's 12:15 p.m. EDT press conference.

Game time temperature was 48 degrees, with winds out of the east-northeast at 10 mph.

Indians right-hander Kluber (1-1, 7.71) threw only 35 pitches in the first three innings before the break. The Indians lead 1-0 on Michael Brantley's third-inning home run to right field off White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana (1-0, 2.77).

Kluber seems to have inherited the "Rain Man" title held by Scott Kazmir last season. All three of Kluber's scheduled starts have been delayed or postponed by rain this season and he has started two makeup games.

The Indians have an off day Monday before opening a three-game series against the Tigers Tuesday in Detroit.
