Rescheduled for single-admission doubleheader Sunday

Saturday's Astros-Yankees game postponed

NEW YORK -- On a day that will revolve around the No. 2, with Derek Jeter's uniform number set to be permanently installed in Monument Park, it seems only fitting that the Yankees and Astros should play two.

The Yankees announced that Saturday's game against the Astros at Yankee Stadium has been postponed due to a forecast of inclement weather. The game has been rescheduled as the first game of a single-admission doubleheader on Sunday.

The Yanks' Luis Severino is expected to face Houston's Mike Fiers in the first game, with Masahiro Tanaka and Charlie Morton scheduled to pitch the nightcap.

Only tickets dated for Sunday, May 14, will be valid for the doubleheader. The first game will start at 2:05 p.m. ET. The Derek Jeter Night pregame ceremony will take place no earlier than 6:35 p.m., and the second game is scheduled to start at the conclusion of the ceremony, but no earlier than 7:35 p.m.

Fans with tickets for Saturday's game may exchange them for any regular-season game at Yankee Stadium through the end of the 2018 season (subject to availability). Sunday's doubleheader is sold out.
