Hurricane Joaquin washes out three games Friday

Friday October 2nd, 2015

Hurricane Joaquin has forced the postponement of three games on the East Coast that were scheduled for 7:05 p.m. on Friday.

The Yankees and Orioles will play a day-night doubleheader in Baltimore on Saturday beginning at 12:05 p.m. ET, while the Nationals and Mets will start at 1:10 p.m. in New York. Both nightcaps will start just after 7 p.m.

The Marlins and Phillies will play a single-admission doubleheader in Philadelphia beginning at 4:05 p.m. ET.

The Yankees, who clinched a Wild Card berth on Thursday, can clinch home field advantage for their game Tuesday with a win in one of their three remaining games.

The Mets are fighting for home field advantage in the NLDS, tied with the Dodgers at 89–70 for the second-best record in the National League. The two teams will begin their series on Oct. 9.

Joaquin is now projected to miss the Atlantic coast, though it will still receive rain throughout the weekend.
