At least they didn’t keep us waiting.
The Yankees’ crucial four-game set against the Baltimore Orioles will need to wait until tomorrow, as tonight’s game has been postponed due to severe weather conditions. The game will be made up tomorrow as part of a traditional double-header with seven-inning games, starting at 4:05 EDT.
This has become somewhat of a recurring theme for the 2020 Yankees, who have had 10 games postponed in this short season (8 due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Because of this, they have played in six doubleheaders already, with tomorrow being their seventh.
Here is the official announcement:
Tonight’s game vs Baltimore (Thursday, September 10th) has been postponed and rescheduled as a traditional doubleheader tomorrow, Friday, September 11th, starting at 4:05 pm ET.— New York Yankees (@Yankees) September 10, 2020
Both games of the doubleheader will be seven-inning regulation games.
According to James Wagner, Gerrit Cole will get the ball for Game 1 tomorrow, while Masahiro Tanaka will pitch in Game 2. With the seven-inning games, if things fall the right way, the Yankees may not even need to use their bullpen tomorrow.
