Following Tuesday night's rainout, the New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds will play a day-night doubleheader Wednesday at Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park. The first game will begin at 12:35 p.m. ET with Freddy Garcia (5-6) pitching for the Yankees vs. Mike Leake (6-3) of Cincinnati. Brian Gordon (0-0) will pitch the 7:10 p.m. ET nightcap for New York against Johnny Cueto (4-2) of the Reds.
The Yankees enter play on Wednesday having won nine of their last 11 games.
In the opener, the soft-tossing Garcia will try to continue his success in the sunlight. During five starts this season in day games Garcia has a 1.97 ERA. Gordon, who made the first start of his big-league career against Texas last week at age 32 will pitch the nightcap and try to show that he deserves to stick with the Yankees for a while.
