Red Sox-Yankees washed out

NEW YORK -- Wednesday night's game between the Red Sox and the Yankees was postponed by rain, but not the scheduled duel between right-handers Curt Schilling and Jaret Wright.

With the four-game series whittled to three by day-long showers that forced the postponement at 4:10 p.m. ET, Schilling and Wright will keep their date when the set concludes Thursday night at 7:05 p.m. ET at Yankee Stadium.

The postponement -- a makeup date was not immediately announced -- ensured the Yankees of remaining in the American League East lead when the Red Sox leave town. The Bombers hold a 1 1/2-game lead. Following Thursday night's game, the teams won't see each other again until Aug. 18 in Boston.
