Red Sox game Sunday ahead of Hurricane Irene

Boston Red Sox advanced to Saturday, their final series against the Oakland Athletics as part of a doubleheader, not to play Sunday, when expecting the arrival of Hurricane Irene causing heavy rains in the region.

The start time of the first game went ahead at noon. The second meeting was agreed for 5.00 pm, as part of changes announced on Thursday.

Torrential rain could hit the area since Saturday night and throughout Sunday as Irene moves through the east coast.

"We consider it necessary and prudent move the game from Sunday to Saturday," said Red Sox president Larry Lucchino. "Not only does this give us a better opportunity to play the scheduled games, but make sure that traffic conditions safer for our fans."
