After inclement weather postponed Monday night's game between the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park, the forecast is calling for rain once again Tuesday. However, this time it's not just in Boston.
Tuesday's 16-game slate, including Boston's doubleheader with Detroit, could be marred by weather delays from the Midwest to the East Coast, along with chilly and windy conditions in games west of the Mississippi River.

There's also a chance of rain for the New York Mets' matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies tonight at Citi Field, with winds up to 15 mph by first pitch at 7:10 p.m. EST.
