Astros-Yankees game postponed; doubleheader on Sunday

Astros-Yankees game postponed; doubleheader on Sunday

The second game of the doubleheader is scheduled to start at the conclusion of the Derek Jeter Night pregame ceremony but will not start earlier than 7:35 p.m.

The Bleacher Creatures' first-inning Roll Call of Yankees starters included Jeter, who led NY to five World Series titles during a big league career that spanned 1995-2014, and fans chanted Jeter's name in the late innings.

By the time Derek Jeter takes his rightful place in Monument Park on Sunday night, it's possible he'll have received similar tributes from every living legend in sports and even some from the entertainment and political worlds.

YES will broadcast the first game of the doubleheader and ESPN will broadcast the second game of the doubleheader.

In those three games since Monday's 10-4 win at Cincinnati, the Yankees are hitting.204 (20-for-98) with 34 strikeouts.

Down three runs late, the Yankees put up a six spot in the seventh and pulled out an 11-6 victory over the Houston Astros.

"We've seen a couple of good pitchers", Girardi said.

Eric Sogard and Orlando Arcia hit back-to-back homers in the sixth off Matt Harvey to break a 2-2 tie, spoiling the choppy return of the New York Mets' starter from a three-game suspension in the Milwaukee Brewers'. They're 6-1 in his last seven road outings and 4-1 in his last five starts overall.

Astros: Joe Musgrove (2-3) starts Monday's series opener at Miami.

He had the sixth-most hits in Major League Baseball history, more than any other shortstop and seemingly always hit for a high average.

I cannot recall the last time this happened, and apparently, no one can else can either as a search through five pages of Google yielded nothing for the last time a real doubleheader was played at Yankee Stadium.
