The Red Sox were leading the Twins 3-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh inning on Sunday, when the heavens opened up above Target Field and the rain came down. Two hours later, the teams were still being held hostage by Mother Nature, waiting to hear if they would get a chance to resume play. David Ortiz is tired of waiting around. The Red Sox designated hitter tweeted his displeasure at the length of the delay two hours after play was halted. Check out what he had to say below. Raining for 2 hours and nobody will call the game.... Come on!!!!! http://t.co/QipvKHOXp7— David Ortiz (@davidortiz) May 19, 2013 The Red Sox will travel from Minneapolis to Chicago after the conclusion of Sunday’s game, so it’s understandable that Ortiz and the players would like to get settled into the Windy City as soon as possible. On the other hand, Shane Victorino and Jacoby Ellsbury appeared not to be in any rush. I would love to see @davidortiz do a tarp slide! Who's with me????? @JacobyEllsbury will record it— Shane Victorino (@ShaneVictorino) May 19, 2013
