Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Sean Rodriguez was running late to Yankee Stadium because of a flood at his condominium back home in Florida.

Rodriguez was in manager Joe Maddon's original starting lineup Friday night against New York. Rodriguez was scratched and Gabe Kapler took his place.

The Rays say Rodriguez was expected to rejoin the team sometime during the game.
