Yankees and Indians Postponed By Rain
The scheduled game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians has been postponed by rain.
No makeup date was immediately announced. The teams are scheduled to finish their series with a single game Thursday night, but with a forecast for more showers it might be tough to get that one in. This is New York’s only visit to Cleveland this season.
Zach McAllister is slated to start Thursday for the Indians against Phil Hughes. Ivan Nova, who was supposed to start Wednesday for the Yankees, will be skipped in the rotation.
Play never began Wednesday and the game was called 46 minutes after the scheduled first pitch.
The rainout comes at a good time for the Indians, who have been forced to juggle their rotation because of injuries and Carlos Carrasco’s ejection for hitting Kevin Youkilis with a pitch Tuesday. Corey Kluber, who had been called up to make an emergency start, will pitch out of the bullpen Thursday.
