Saturday's Game 6 postponed due to rain

Oct 24, 2009, 6:24 PM EDT

Saturday’s Game 6 of the ALCS between the Yankees and Angels has been postponed due to rain. The Yankees made their best efforts to get the game in, even opening the gates and conducting warm-ups on the field, however there didn’t seem to be an adequate window in the forecast.

The two teams will reconvene on Sunday night, with first pitch scheduled for 8:20 pm ET. Andy Pettitte will square off against Joe Saunders or possibly Jered Weaver. You can join me right here for a live chat during the game.

    First pitch @ 8:20 on a work/school night, ugh. Another game that’ll end past midnight, with whatever excitement happening being missed by me.

    It still would have been nice if they had just looked outside and called the game earlier. I had to drive up in heavy rain and traffic for 50 miles with just 10 more to go only to hear Mike Francessa finally say the game was cancelled. Would have been nice to not have to waste gas and tolls not to mention having to drive in that torrential downpour.

    And as far as an adequate window to get the game in I don’t know what weather maps they were watching but between Accuweather, the weather channel, and the NOAA website there never was going to be any windows by the afternoon.

    I like that photo of a few angels sitting in the dugout and looking out at the rain like a bunch of meerkats.
    And I HATE meerkats.
