A first-inning three-run home run from Shohei Ohtani was not enough power to keep the lights on at Tropicana Field on Thursday evening. The power went out during the bottom of the fourth inning due to a storm in the St. Petersburg area,’s Juan Toribio reports.

The score remains 3-0 while the players and fans wait for power to be restored. Ryan Yarbrough drew the start for the Rays while Tyler Skaggs toed the rubber for the Angels.

The Rays entered this four-game series 41-26, a half-game behind the first-place Yankees in the AL East. The 33-35 Angels are in fourth place in the AL West.
