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.
If the Guardians win, they’ll advance to the American League Championship Series for the first time since their World Series appearance in 2016.
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.
The Guardians came back to Cleveland for Game 3 on Saturday. RF Oscar Gonzalez gave the Guardians the series lead by way of a walk-off 2-RBI Single to give the team a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series.
