Washed out in the Bronx
Monday’s game between the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics was postponed due to inclement weather and will be rescheduled for a later date in the schedule.
The announcement was made by the Yankees at approximately 3:30 p.m. ET, the first rainout at the new Yankee Stadium. Cold, wet and windy conditions were expected to continue for the rest of the evening in the New York area.
Both clubs plan to use the same starting pitchers for Tuesday’s matchup, with left-hander Dana Eveland drawing the call for the Athletics and left-hander Andy Pettitte making the start for the Yankees.
A makeup date was not immediately announced but it is expected to be in July. The two clubs are scheduled to meet again in the Bronx July 24-26, with a common off-day July 23.
