Start of game to be delayed


NEW YORK — The start of tonight’s game will be delayed by storms in the area. The tarp is down. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE, 7:37 p.m.: The Yankees just announced to the crowd that they do expect to play the game tonight. The tarp is still down but the rain has stopped. The good news is that it has cooled off considerably from this afternoon.

UPDATE, 9:37 p.m.: The tarp is coming off the field.
