Yankees Set for Doubleheader With Dodgers After Game 1 Rainout

The New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers are scheduled to play a doubleheader in New York today after last night’s game was postponed because of rain.

Tickets for last night’s game at Yankee Stadium are valid for the first game, which has a 1:05 p.m. New York time start. The second game, which requires a separate admission, has a 7:05 p.m. first pitch.

The two-game series marks the first time the Dodgers, who are managed by former Yankees All-Star Don Mattingly, are playing in the Bronx since the 1981 World Series.

That postseason matchup, won by the Dodgers, capped a five-year stretch in which the teams played three times for baseball’s championship. They’ve met 11 times in the World Series, more than any other two teams, with the Yankees holding an 8-3 lead.

The Dodgers played in New York City’s Brooklyn borough before moving to Los Angeles for the 1958 season.
