Nearly two hours after the Indians home opener was delayed due to rain, the few fans that remained at Progressive Field were teased when the grounds crew came running out on the field and began removing the tarp.
We last we left the Tribe, starter Scott Lewis was being removed from the game after giving up a go-ahead home run to Marco Scutaro with one out in the fifth inning.
But before reliever Rafael Betancourt could jog in from the bullpen, the umps pdelayed the action in the middle of a steady downpour.
But just when it looked like the game would go on, the grounds crew peeled off the tarp, dumped the collected rain and then...put it right back on.
