The New York Yankees were gearing up to face off against the Texas Rangers on Friday evening, but inclement weather forced a postponement.
According to the Yankees’ media advisory:
Tonight’s New York Yankees Vs. Texas Rangers game scheduled to air on Prime Video has been postponed due to inclement weather
The makeup game has been scheduled for Sunday, May 8that 1:35pm ET and will air exclusively on Prime Video
Gerrit Cole was expected to get the start for the Bombers in their 16th game of the season and 14th at home. Cole currently hosts a 3.00 ERA, 10.13 strikeouts per nine, and 84.7% left on base rate over 24 innings. Cole finally found his groove against Cleveland and Kansas City, going 12.2 innings without allowing a single run.
Coming off their first loss in 12 games against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Yankees will be looking to get back in the win column and continue their dominant play on Saturday. Unfoaurtently, the weather is also looking suspect on Saturday, meaning a second consecutive postponement could be in play.
