BOSTON (CBS/AP) – A drone delayed the Red Sox game with the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park Thursday night.

The Rays were batting in the top of the third when a drone was spotted flying outside the park beyond the right-field bleachers.

The players and umpires walked off the field and the game was delayed for about six minutes before the drone took off.

“I heard it was a kid. I hope he didn’t get in too much trouble,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

The Red Sox (6-13) lost the game 17-8, their fourth straight loss. They currently have the worst record in the American League.
