Both games of the Detroit Tigers' scheduled doubleheader against the New York Yankees have been postponed due to weather, the team announced Sunday. Opening Day on March 29 was postponed until March 30.The team's second game of the season on March 31 was postponed until April 1, when the Tigers and Pirates played a split doubleheader.
Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, with Game 2 called in the early afternoon.
The Tigers next host the Orioles for a three-game series starting Tuesday.
It's far from a handsome day for baseball in Detroit, so they'll only play one. Left-hander Francisco Liriano is slated to start the first game and lefty Matthew Boyd is slated to start the second game.
DETROIT (AP) - Both games of Sunday's doubleheader between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers have been postponed because of rain.
Game 2 was still scheduled for 7:10 p.m. No ticket exchange is necessary.
If you count rain-outs of rescheduled games, today marked the fifth and sixth times the Tigers have lost a home game to weather this season. An April 4 postponement against the Kansas City Royals will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on April 20.
