Wednesday’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees was postponed due to the forecast of severe weather in the vicinity of Yankee Stadium.
The game will be made up Thursday afternoon as a regular doubleheader beginning at 3 p.m. ET.
Temperatures hovered in the low 90s around Yankee Stadium, and the forecast called for heavy thunderstorms all throughout Wednesday. The game was called off about 40 minutes before the scheduled first pitch.
Wednesday’s scheduled starters will now start Thursday’s opener, with Yonny Chirinos (8-4, 3.11 ERA) taking the mound for the Rays against the Yankees’ Domingo German (11-2, 3.40). Charlie Morton (11-2, 2.35) will start the second game for Tampa Bay, with New York’s second starter to be announced.
