Play never began Thursday night, and the tarp was still covering the infield when the game was called at 9 p.m. The teams also were rained out on Wednesday night, cutting a four-game series in half. The Yankees won the first two games, outscoring the Indians 25-7.
No makeup date was announced. However, both teams have an open date May 13 and it's possible they will play a doubleheader. This was New York's only scheduled visit to Progressive Field, but the Yankees will now be coming back to Cleveland.
The Indians will open a three-game series at home Friday against the Chicago White Sox. The Yankees return home to face the Baltimore Orioles.
