Just about a half hour before first pitch was scheduled between the Yankees and Rays, Wednesday's game was officially postponed due to rain in the forecast.
The Yankees and Rays will hold a doubleheader on Thursday, starting at 3:00 p.m. The Yankees were scheduled to pitch Domingo German on Wednesday night, with J.A. Happ set to go on Thursday. Aaron Boone said on Wednesday night that German is scheduled to pitch the first game on Thursday, while the second game starter is still up in the air, and could be an opener.
The Yankees are in the midst of a 10-game homestand, and are not scheduled to have an off day until July 29th. The Bombers currently hold a 6.0 game lead in the AL East over the Rays, with Boston 10 games back.
