Rain Leads To Wednesday Doubleheader For Yanks And Reds
Thanks to mother nature, we’ll have a day/night doubleheader at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati on Wednesday between the Yankees and Reds.
Afternoon rainshowers with even more rain in the forecast caused Tuesday’s Yanks/Cincy game to be postponed.
The teams will play a split-admission doubleheader on Wednesday – with first pitches set for 12:35pm and 7:10pm Eastern.
New York will have Freddy Garcia pitch against Mike Leake in the afternoon game. These were the original starters for Wednesday afternoon’s regularly scheduled game. Brian Gordon and Johnny Cueto, the starters for Tuesday night’s rained out affair, will match up for the evening game.
Tuesday’s postponement was only the fifth in the Reds’ nine seasons at Great American Ball Park. This will be the Yankees only trip to Cincinnati this season.
