The Yankees will have to settle for a three-game sweep of the Twins, as Hurricane Henri’s arrival has led to the postponement of Sunday’s planned finale. The game has been rescheduled for Monday, September 13th at 2:05pm ET. No one could blame the Twins if they’re happy to escape both town and the wrath of a Luke Voit scorned.
Sunday’s game was set to feature Luis Gil, who still has yet to give up a run in his career, against Griffin Jax, a right-handed rookie with a 5.11 ERA. Gil will have to wait until his next time out to continue his impressive scoreless inning streak. September 13th was originally an off-day between a road series in Queens against the Mets and a trip down to Baltimore, but now, they’ll have a one-game stop against the Twins.
Weather permitting, the Yankees will play an interleague matchup against the Braves in Atlanta on Monday at 7:20pm ET. Jordan Montgomery is scheduled to start for New York, though perhaps Gil will be moved back. Atlanta’s starter is listed as TBD.
Stay safe if you’re in the hurricane’s path.
