Red Sox postpone game in wake of manhunt

In wake of the manhunt in Watertown, Massachusetts and the surrounding area for suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnev, the Boston Red Sox have announced that tonight's game at Fenway Park with the Kansas City Royals has been postponed. The area is still under a civilian lockdown, and with gametime approaching and Tsarnev still at large, it simply makes sense to postpone the game.

In addition to the Red Sox postponement, tonight's Bruins game has also been postponed, along with the Bruins game on Monday and Celtics game on Tuesday following the bombing at the Marathon.

It's unknown when the game will be made up, but that's really not important at this point in time. Hopefully the Boston police department can get this situation resolved soon, and we can complete this horrific chapter of American history.
