NEW YORK (AP) The game between the AL East-leading Toronto Blue Jays and the second-place New York Yankees scheduled for Thursday night has been postponed because of rain.

It was called more than an hour before it was supposed to begin. The teams will make it up with a doubleheader Saturday starting at 1:05 p.m., with the second game beginning a half-hour after the opener ends.

The Blue Jays lead the Yankees by 1 1/2 games going into this four-game series. Toronto ace David Price had been set to start off against Yankees rookie Luis Severino.
