NEW YORK -- The Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees game has been postponed because of rain, pushing back an intriguing pitching matchup: David Price vs. CC Sabathia.

No makeup date was immediately announced, but it shouldn't be too difficult to find one. After this weekend's series, the Rays return to Yankee Stadium from Sept. 7-9 -- and the teams have a common off day Sept. 10.

Another possibility is a day-night doubleheader on Labor Day, Sept. 7.

Slated to square off Friday night, Price and Sabathia will now pitch Saturday afternoon. It will be the third big league start for Price, drafted No. 1 overall by Tampa Bay in 2007.

Sabathia is 5-3 with a 3.46 ERA in the first season of a $161 million, seven-year contract with the Yankees.
