Rays And Yankees Rained Out, Double Header Set For Sept 21

One day after being dominated 9-2 by Jorge Posada and the New York Yankees, mother nature is doing a number on the Tampa Bay Rays baseball plans. Sunday’s matinee rubber match between the AL East rivals has been rained out and will be made up with a day-night double header on September 21st.

After taking a few tarp slides, the Rays will take a train ride to Boston wearing 1950’s style headwear in advance of a three game set with the division leading Boston Red Sox, beginning on Tuesday, also with a day-night double header as a result of an earlier Fenway Park rainout.

The extra off day has shifted the Rays starting pitching rotation yet again, with James Shields now scheduled to start the day game of the DH, and Jeff Neimann going in the nightcap. David Price will pitch the final game of the series on Wednesday.

Tampa Bay has won 7 of their last 10 but find themselves still 9.5 games behind Boston in the ultra competitive American League East, and 8.5 games behind wild-card leader New York.
