The highly anticipated series finale between the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox was abruptly halted due to inclement weather on Wednesday evening.

The game, which was scoreless at the time, was suspended in the top of the second inning with Davis Schneider on first base and Danny Jansen preparing to bat. The contest will be resumed on August 26 as part of a split doubleheader, picking up where it left off.

The postponement came as a result of severe weather conditions, which made it unsafe to continue play. The Blue Jays and Red Sox had split the first two games of the series, setting up a thrilling conclusion that will now have to wait until next month.

In other news, Blue Jays outfielder Daulton Varsho remains sidelined with a back injury, although manager John Schneider expressed optimism that he could return to the lineup as soon as Thursday.

Meanwhile, first baseman Joey Votto continues to rehab from an ankle injury and lower back tightness, going 0 for 3 in a rehab game for Low-A Dunedin on Wednesday.

For the Red Sox, first baseman Triston Casas is making progress in his recovery from a left rib strain, having undergone an MRI that showed his ribcage has fully healed.

He has begun taking swings at 75% power and is working his way back to full strength. Additionally, pitcher Liam Hendricks threw his first bullpen session on Wednesday, marking a remarkable milestone in his recovery from Tommy John surgery last August.
