New York’s hopes of evening up the series will have to wait a day, as tonight’s ALCS Game 4 has been postponed due to inclement weather.
Astros vs. Yankees Game 4 Weather Forecast
According to Sports Insights’ MLB weather data, there’s an 80% chance of rain at Yankee Stadium tonight between the hours of 8-11 p.m. ET.
Considering Game 4 was scheduled to get underway at 8:08 p.m., postponing the game appears to be the correct decision.
Rain won’t be the only issue either, as strong winds are expected to blow as well. Steady 15-20 mph breezes are forecasted throughout the entire scheduled gametime.
The National Weather Service is even more pessimistic, calling for heavy rainfall and a 100% chance of precipitation. In fact, this Astros vs. Yankees weather forecast projects wind gusts up to 34 mph and the possibility of one to two inches of rain.
Now that tonight’s game has been officially postponed due to inclement weather, Game 4 will move to Thursday in the Bronx.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Masahiro Tanaka and Zack Greinke will take the mound tomorrow night, but odds are not yet available for this game.
