The postponed May 19 game between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays will be made up as part of a day-night, separate-admission doubleheader at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, August 20, the team announced Friday.

The two teams have a common off-day on Monday, August 19, but the decision was made to play a doubleheader on August 20. Game 1 that day will begin at 1 p.m., with Game 2 to begin at the previously-scheduled 7 p.m. start time.

That May 19 game was to be the series finale of a three-game set - one the Yankees had won the first two games of - but will now be the opener of what has become a four-game set; the Blue Jays make their final visit to the Stadium in that series, which runs August 20-22.
