NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Tuesday night’s Yankees game against the Blue Jays has been postponed due to inclement weather that’s expected to pass through the area.

As a result, the two teams will play a day-night, separate-admission doubleheader at Yankee Stadium beginning on Wednesday at 1:05 p.m.

Andy Pettitte will pitch the afternoon game and David Phelps will take the hill in the nightcap.

The Mets-Phillies game scheduled for Tuesday night at Citi Field has also been postponed. New York will make up the game on Thursday at 7:10 p.m.

Matt Harvey will pitch on Wednesday for the Amazin’s and Jeremy Hefner will take the ball on Thursday.
