(AP) David Ortiz drove in three runs and the Boston Red Sox opened a day-night doubleheader by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 Tuesday in a game delayed nearly three hours by rain.


The halt in the fifth inning lasted 2 hours, 59 minutes, prolonging a game that had already been postponed because of rain on April 12.


The Red Sox invited fans who stuck out Tuesday's first game to return for the second for free. The opener ended after the scheduled 7:05 p.m. start time for the nightcap by that point, with little turnaround time, Game 2 were already wandering into Fenway Park.
