N.Y. Yankees ~ Mother Nature Said Not Tonight

New York Yankees:  GAME CALLED.

Delmon Young quieted the Yankee crowd post haste with a first inning home run off CC Sabathia.  By the time Detroit's Justin Verlander took the mound in the bottom half of the inning, rain started to fall further dampening the Yankee crowd's spirits even more.  But then the Yankees tied the game at one when Derek Jeter slid home, and everyone was supremely confident again.

The skies started to pour as the umpires stood their ground with arms folded.  CC finished off the Tigers in the top of the second; striking out his fourth batter in two innings.

Puddles were forming in the dirt as the Yankees headed to the dugout for their turn at-bat in the bottom half of the inning.  But the tarp beat them onto the field.  By 10:30pm the game was postponed.

A feature match up between two League aces; wasted.  Now both managers must scramble to reset their starting rotations.

Game called.
