Heavy rainfall causes Rogers Centre roof to leak during Blue Jays game

The roof at the Rogers Centre started to leak during Tuesday's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Boston Red Sox because of heavy rainfall.

There are many metaphors that could depict how the Toronto Blue Jays‘ season has gone like on Tuesday night when reports began to flood on Twitter of heavy rainfall causing a leak at the Rogers Centre.

That wasn’t the only news that caused an issue for the Blue Jays in their 10-7, 10-inning loss to the Boston Red Sox.

Marcus Stroman was forced to leave the game with a right middle finger blister after only allowing a run through seven innings. Ryan Tepera came in for Stroman but allowed four runs in the eighth.

The issues didn’t end there as the lights went out in the stadium after the game as fans were exiting the building.

The roof was open at the start of the game but, it was forced to close due to heavy rain in the forecast. Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for Toronto.

It has been a tough year for the roof. Ice from the CN Tower punctured a hole in it, postponing a game between the Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals in April.

Back in 2012, the roof malfunctioned as it was trying to close during a game between the Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles. Fans were forced to cover up as rain got through the opening.
