Thunderstorm puts Phillies, Bucs on hold

PITTSBURGH -- A thunderstorm has forced the Pirates and Phillies into a rain delay in the bottom of the eighth inning on Sunday. The tarp was rolled out onto the field as the rain came down in sheets and thunder crackled.

The Pirates were leading, 5-4, thanks to a pinch-hit home run by Adam Frazier in the seventh.
