The Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers will have to wait another night to renew their storied rivalry as Tuesday's game at Yankee Stadium was postponed because of rain.

The game will be made up as part of a day-night split doubleheader Wednesday with the first game slated for 1:05 p.m. and the second at 7:05 p.m., the Yankees announced on their official Twitter.

Phil Hughes was originally scheduled to start Tuesday's game but has been pushed backed to start the second game Wednesday. Hiroki Kuroda will take the mound in the day game.

Fans with paid tickets to Tuesday's game will be able to use them for the rescheduled game or exchange them for any regular season game at Yankee Stadium during the 2013 or 2014 season based on availability. Complimentary tickets, however, must be used for the rescheduled game.
