Thunder Scares Yankees, Red Sox Players During Rain-Shortened Game (VIDEO)

The players in the Yankees' and Red Sox' dugouts may be on opposite sides of a historic rivalry but they have at least one thing in common: Thunder is scary.

With a storm having sent the players to their respective dugouts during a rain delay at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night, both teams were startled by a loud boom of thunder in the Bronx. ESPN cameras showed the reactions of players in both dugouts, notably New York's Brett Gardner and Boston's Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Led by the Boston catcher, a few Red Sox players immediately darted to the locker room.

The game was eventually called during the sixth inning with the Red Sox winning 3-0.
