Tonight’s game was called off. Here is the release from the Yankees:
Tonight’s game between the Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium has been postponed due to rain and rescheduled for tomorrow, September 13 at 7:05 p.m., as the second game of a day-night doubleheader. Tickets for Friday’s game will ONLY be honored for the 7:05 p.m. game on Saturday and will NOT be honored for Saturday’s 1:05 p.m. contest.
Fans are strongly encouraged to use their tickets for tomorrow night’s rescheduled game at 7:05 p.m. as there is no ability to exchange tickets for another game in 2008.
Those fans unable to use their tickets for the rescheduled contest tomorrow at 7:05 p.m., may instead exchange them for tickets to any home game at the new Yankee Stadium in the 2009 season, subject to availability and only after tickets are made available to the general public at a date to be determined in the future.
At the time tickets are available to be exchanged, fans may only do so in person at the new Yankee Stadium ticket office.
Akron-Trenton rained out as well. Game 3 will be tomorrow. A Game 5, if needed, would be Monday.
There is good news: Mighty Scranton is putting the smack down on Durham, leading 11-1 in the fifth. Annie Savoy is in tears. Phil Hughes has fanned 10 through four innings and allowed one run. That’s right, 10.
Phil Hughes is going to be just fine, people. He’s 22. People are acting like he’s washed up. You know what Andy Pettitte was doing when he was 22? Pitching in the International League. Give the guy a chance.
