We will have to wait until Sunday

Tonight's game has been postponed.

Rain postponed Saturday's Game 6 of the American League Championship Series, and the Angels and Yankees hope for better conditions on Sunday in New York. Game 6 will be played at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday and aired on FOX. If Game 7 is necessary, it will be played on Monday at 7:57 p.m.

The Yankees -- leading the series, 3-2 --will stick with starter Andy Pettitte, who is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA so far this postseason, and the Angels will stay with lefty Joe Saunders, who has a 2.57 ERA in the ALCS. New York manager Joe Girardi said that postponing the game was a good decision.

"The one thing is you don't want to stop and start," Girardi said. "I don't think any of us are exactly sure when the rain is going to get out of here or how late it's going to be, so I respect the decision they made.

"I'm sure both clubs would've loved to have played. The weather is not permitting."
