The New York Yankees fanbase will have to wait for what seems like the inevitable, as Game 4 of the ALCS was delayed due to rain.
The New York Yankees are facing down a 0-3 deficit and yet another postseason run ending at the hands of the Houston Astros. To say that most of the Yankees fanbase was apathetic is an understatement, as evident by fans leaving early during Game 3 on Saturday, and ticket prices for Game 4 being insanely low.
For fans just wanting the series, and the pain, to finally end, or for those who wanted to see a potential comeback attempt by the Yankees, mother nature had other ideas. Due to rain in the New York area, MLB announced that the game has been delayed, and is facing a potential postponement to Monday.
Mother nature delays Yankees-Astros ALCS Game 4
Delaying the inevitable?
The Yankees have had to deal with game postponements due to rain throughout this postseason. Games 2 and 5 of the ALDS against the Cleveland Guardians were postponed due to rain at Yankee Stadium.
In New York’s previous two matchups against the Astros in the ALCS, they were at least competitive. This time around, New York’s batters strike out in bunches, strand runners on base, and are incapable of getting hits.
Game 3 was a bad one for the Yankees, as they recorded just three hits and left 16 runners on base. They couldn’t score a single run, losing 5-0 to push them to the brink of elimination.
For those fans just wanting to watch Game 4 or for those that just wanted the series to end so they could reach the offseason, mother nature said to hold up.
UPDATE: MLB announced that Game 4 will start on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET.
