NEW YORK, N.Y. - The game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees has been postponed by rain, delaying the renewal of their old October rivalry.

The game was called Tuesday night about 30 minutes before the scheduled first pitch. It will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader Wednesday, with start times of 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m.

A star player and fan favourite when he was captain of the Yankees, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was back in the Bronx to face the team that passed him over when it hired Joe Girardi as skipper in 2007. The two-game series marks the Dodgers' first trip to Yankee Stadium since clinching the 1981 World Series.

Hyun-Jin Ryu had been set to pitch for Los Angeles against Phil Hughes.
