Weather postpones Guardians’ ALDS Game 5 at Yankees Stadium until Oct. 18
NEW YORK, New York (WOIO) - MLB Communications confirmed the ALDS Game 5 between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Guardians has been postponed until 4:07 p.m. on Oct. 18.
Extended inclement weather conditions are to blame... something the Guardians are all too familiar with this season.
First pitch was initially scheduled for 7:07 p.m. on Oct. 17 at Yankees Stadium.
The Yankees previously announced that officials would reassess the forecast at 7 p.m. and announce a new game time thereafter.
Guardians CF Myles Straw spent the rain delay (and his birthday!) throwing around a football with fans at Yankee Stadium.
The series is tied 2-2 after the Guardians dropped Game 4 at Progressive Field on Sunday, forcing them to head back to The Bronx.

The No. 1 seeded Houston Astros will be the ALCS opponent.
The ‘Guardiac Kids’ started the series in the Bronx, losing Game 1 with a score of 4-1 and winning Game 2 with a score of 4-2.
