BOSTON - Game 4 of the AL championship series between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox was postponed because of rain Sunday and rescheduled for Monday night.

The game will start at 8:18 p.m. EDT. Game 5 was rescheduled to begin at 4:18 p.m. on Tuesday, which would have been an off day for the teams.

New York leads the best-of-seven series 2-1. If a Game 6 is necessary, it will be played Wednesday, as scheduled, at Yankee Stadium.

Sandy Alderson, baseball's executive vice president of operations, said: ''Given the magnitude of this game and the importance of this series, we felt it was best to reschedule.''
