Melky Cabrera is very scared by the thunder in Tampa Bay

Thursday September 4th, 2014

The weather in Tampa Bay has been moody lately – four Rays games so far this season have been delayed by power outages caused by lightning. During Wednesday night’s game against the Blue Jays, the thunder struck again.

Though the teams were playing inside a dome and there was only minimal electricity outage (a few flickering lights), the game was delayed by 30 minutes.

But hey, the thunder was loud and scary enough to affect at least one player – Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera.

The Blue Jays would go on to win 7-4, and Cabrera? He finished 0-4.
