Fresh off winning their ninth game in a row on Saturday against the Minnesota Twins, the New York Yankees will have to wait until next week to keep their streak alive and try to take it to ten contests in a row.
The Yankeesâ€™ official site reported that with Hurricane Henri bearing down on the New York area, Sunday’s game against the Twins at Yankee Stadium, the series finale, has been postponed due to the forecast of severe inclement weather.
The game will be played on Monday, Sept. 13, at 2:05 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium, per the teamâ€™s official site.
The Yankees are a season-high 20 games above the .500 mark and are playing some of their best ball of the season. Players like Aaron Judge, Luke Voit, Gerrit Cole, and Jonathan Loaisiga have been crucial to keep the streak alive, but it has been the unlikely contributors such as Albert Abreu, Nestor Cortes Jr., and Andrew Velazquez the ones that have provided the extra push.
The Yankees published ticket information for the rescheduled game
The team site explained that fans holding paid tickets for Sunday’s postponed game may use them for the rescheduled game on Sept. 13 or exchange them for tickets to a similar regular-season game at Yankee Stadium (subject to availability) as described in the Yankees’ rain check policy, which may be found at yankees.com/raincheck.
The Yankees are close to welcoming back some of their injured players, such as Corey Kluber, Domingo German, Gleyber Torres, Gio Urshela, and even Clarke Schmidt if he is ever needed. The Bombers are peaking at the right time and are now in sole possession of the American Leagueâ€™s first Wild Card spot.
At 72-52, the Yanks are also four games behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East, so the division, while unlikely, remains a very tangible possibility for the Bronx Bombers.
