One team was supposed to go home Monday night. Instead, both teams did — and so did their fans, thanks to weather.
The Yankees’ highly anticipated Game 5 American League Division Series matchup got rained out Monday and is now set to start at 4:07 pm ET Tuesday. The game will air on TBS and WFAN 660/101.9 FM, WADO 1280 and ESPN Radio.
It comes after a rough Monday that saw fans wait roughly three hours in increasingly damp conditions before the MLB opted to push the game a day. Tickets purchased for Monday’s game are valid for Tuesday’s game, but no refunds or exchanges are available because of MLB policy , meaning if you can’t make the rescheduled contest you’re out of luck.
Tuesday’s weather will be blustery and chilly, but it should stay sunny all day — so no more rain delays are forecast.
The Yankees and Guardians are tied up 2-2 in the series. Whoever wins Tuesday will travel to Houston to take on the Astros in the best-of-seven American League Championship Series. The winner of that tilt goes to the World Series.
