New York Yankees: Monday’s Subway Series Game Rained Out

New York Yankees, Masahiro Tanaka

Monday’s subway series opener between the New York Yankees and the New York Mets has been postponed, and the teams will play a day-night doubleheader Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.

Game one will be starting at 1:05PM, and game two will start at 7:05PM. The evening game will be broadcasted nationally on ESPN, along with YES.

Masahiro Tanaka will be facing Jason Vargas in game one, and James Paxton will be facing Zack Wheeler in game two. Tanaka will be pitching on two extra days rest with the paternity leave and now the rainout.

The 26th man for the game is currently not known. It will likely be either Thairo Estrada or Chance Adams, who was expected to make a start with Double-A Trenton tonight. Adams was sent to AA to be closer to New York because the Railriders are on a road trip down South.

For the Yankees, Tuesday will be the only two games of their homestand, while the two games will be the only of the Mets “roadtrip”.

The Mets are currently 32-33 and are third in their division. The Yankees sit tied with Tampa Bay at 40-24 atop the AL East, but that will change either way with the Rays taking on the Athletics Monday evening.

Tuesday should be a fun day between the two teams, and hopefully the Yankees will emerge with two wins before they head off to Chicago.

Update (7:20PM): Wheeler will be pitching game one and Vargas will be pitching game two for the Mets.
