Game 4 Of ALCS Postponed, Series Resumes Thursday Night

The Yankees will have to wait a day before trying to even the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros.


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Yankees will have to wait a day before trying to even the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros.

Major League Baseball announced Wednesday that Game 4 has been postponed due to impending inclement weather in the New York City area.

The series will resume Thursday at 8:08 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

If the series goes seven games, Wednesday’s rainout, assuming there are no other postponements, will force the teams to play four straight days, with travel back to Houston for Games 6 and 7. There is then an off day before the World Series begins Tuesday night at the AL representative.

The postponement likely will benefit both teams on Thursday, as far as starting pitchers go. The Yankees and Astros had announced that they were each going to do a bullpen game on Wednesday. However, the postponement allows for a potential Game 1 rematch on the hill on Thursday, with Masahiro Tanaka taking the ball for the Yankees against the Astros’ Zack Greinke.

Tanaka outpitched Greinke in the series opener on Saturday in Houston, hurling six innings of one-hit ball in New York’s 7-0 victory.

The Astros won 3-2 in 11 innings on Sunday and then took the series lead with a 4-1 victory in Game 3 on Tuesday.
