After rain delay, game set to begin at 6 p.m.
After nearly a two-hour rain delay, tonight’s Mariners game at Yankee Stadium is now expected to begin at 6 p.m. PT.
They’ve cleared the tarp off the field, pregame ceremonies are underway and players are warming. So by all accounts, they’ll get this one started at least.
The Yankees already have a doubleheader scheduled for Saturday, so they surely don’t want to have another twinbill this week and will do what they can to play this one tonight, even if it means starting at 9 p.m. ET and getting done somewhere near midnight.
The Mariners are attempting to put an end to their 15-game skid, with Jason Vargas taking on former Mariner right-hander Freddy Garcia.
