BY foxsports • July 9, 2009

The Toronto Blue Jays' game against the Tampa Bay Rays was delayed for 20 minutes in the middle of the seventh inning by a thunderstorm that knocked out power to some of the lights at Tropicana Field.

The Rays were leading 3-2 when play was stopped Thursday afternoon.

Weather delays are rare at Tropicana Field, which has a permanent roof. The local power company told the Rays that the outage was caused by a lightning strike to a nearby substation.
