Yankees vs. Astros at Yankee Stadium postponed due to rain

NEW YORK-Game 4 of the AL Championship Series scheduled for Wednesday night has been postponed because of rain in the forecast.

Conversely, playing four games in four consecutive days-provided the series stretches that far-would have a major impact on both teams' bullpens. Game 5 has been rescheduled for 7:08 p.m. ET Friday, which originally had been tabbed as a travel day, if necessary. While the Astros and Yankees might enjoy the day off today, this could create some new problems for them. As a result of the delay, the Astros now should be able to trot out Zack Greinke and Justin Verlander in Game 4 and 5, respectively.

Stanton is now day-to-day with a quadriceps issue and didn't start either Game 2 or Game 3 of the current series, but he homered in Game 1 and is hitting.300/.467/.600 thus far in a tiny sample of 15 postseason plate appearances. Houston beat NY 4-1 in the Bronx on Tuesday night to take a 2-1 series lead. The Astros' bullpen has pitched just 9.1 innings during that same stretch.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone expressed his frustration with the team's offensive execution in the game.

But with the innings mounting up, Masahiro Tanaka will get the ball as he continues to build his impressive postseason resume - and maybe eat some innings in the process. Tanaka pitched six sterling innings as NY won the opener 7-0. The Astros grabbed home field advantage back by earning a 4-1 win in Game 3 on the road Tuesday night.

Lea Menchaca, who witnessed the incident, told the Houston Chronicle that Dinkins chastised the Yankees fan - who was seated behind him in Section 105 of Houston's Minute Maid Park - when the fan clapped over an Astros player striking out in the eighth inning of the game. The Yankees will look to jump on the rookie early, and they need to escape game 4 with a win if they want to stay in this series.
