In the House: No rain

NEW YORK -- Things are looking better for Game Two of the ALCS tonight in the Bronx. I arrived at the stadium about 3 p.m. and there's no rain and no tarp on the field. It's cloudy and breezier than last night but a little warmer too with temperatures pushing 50. Both of these teams want to get this one in but the contingency plan is set for a 4:30 start on Sunday if they don't.

What is not yet decided is if they would then play Game Three Monday in Anaheim as planned or use Monday as a travel day and shelve the Wednesday off day currently scheduled. The forecasts for tonight are improving, with that 70 and 80 percent chance of rain not hitting until after 10 p.m. Frankly, things look much worse tomorrow with the chance of rain listed as 90-100 percent in some spots. Keep that in mind for the Bills-Jets game across the Hudson in the New Jersey Meadowlands.
