Game 6 has been called because of weather. It will be played Sunday at 8:20 p.m. More info to come.
UPDATE, 6:45 p.m.: Here’s the release from the Yankees.
Major League Baseball has announced that tonight’s game between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels at Yankee Stadium has been postponed due to inclement weather. The game is rescheduled for Sunday, October 25 at 8:20 p.m.
Fans holding tickets for Saturday’s postponed game (ALCS Home Game 3 at Yankee Stadium) must use them for the rescheduled game between the Yankees and Angels on Sunday, October 25 at 8:20 p.m. Gates will open at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
Please note that the only valid tickets for Sunday’s rescheduled game are those for ALCS Home Game 3 at Yankee Stadium and that there are no refunds or exchanges for tickets to the postponed game.
Tickets for ALCS Home Game 4 at Yankee Stadium will be valid for ALCS Game 7, only if necessary, on Monday, October 26 at 7:57 p.m.
UPDATE, 6:47 p.m.: Joe Girardi just met with the media and confirmed that Andy Pettitte is still his Game 6 starter. CC Sabathia will pitch Game 7, if necessary, on one day’s extra rest Monday. Don’t forget that Sabathia made just about every start over the last month of the season with one extra day’s rest, so it’s hardly unfamiliar territory. Here’s the audio:
UPDATE, 7:03 p.m.: It’s absolutely pouring and there was lightning in the area, but Andy Pettitte is out doing his running on the warning track. Hopefully he doesn’t drown.
UPDATE, 7:04 p.m.: Now they’ve turned the lights out in the Stadium. You’d assume Sabathia would start tomorrow if Andy is swept away by the current.
UPDATE, 7:08 p.m. We can all rest easy now; Pettitte managed to swim back to the dugout safely.
