Rays' game briefly delayed by broken light

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Sean Rodriguez's foul ball brought about a strange delay.
The Tampa Bay Rays' second baseman hit a ball in the eighth inning of Sunday night's game against Boston that broke a light on an overhanging catwalk down the third-base line.
Parts of the light dropped to the playing surface in foul ground between third base and the Boston bullpen. No one was hit by the debris, which took around three minutes to clean up.
Rodriguez struck out in the at-bat against Boston starter Josh Beckett.
