NEW YORK (AP) -

The opener between the Houston Astros and the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium has been postponed because of a forecast of bad weather and rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

AL Cy Young Award winner Dallas Keuchel is to start for Houston against Masahiro Tanaka of New York in a rematch of last year's AL wild-card game, won by the Astros 3-0.

It was 40 degrees and drizzling when Monday's game was called, 4½ hours before the scheduled first pitch for the afternoon start. Tuesday's forecast is for sunshine and temperatures of about 40 at game time.
