County Championship Div One, Scarborough, day one (close):
Yorkshire v Sussex 204-1
Steven Patterson claimed two Sussex wickets in the Division One match before rain set in shortly before tea.
They could be his only wickets because Tim Bresnan has been released by England and will replace Patterson in the Yorkshire side on the second day.
Patterson had Mike Yardy (26) caught behind and also removed Murray Goodwin.
But Chris Nash (78) and Andy Hodd (66 not out) ensured that when rain ended play shortly before tea Sussex were well placed on 203-4.
