Yankees and Tigers aren't giving up after postponing Game 1

Adjust Comment Print

For the fourth time this season, a Detroit Tigers game has been postponed because of inclement weather. It's not even clear if the Tigers and Yankees will be able to get their night game in, as The Weather Network is forecasting a 90-percent chance of rain Sunday evening, with a game-time temperature of 43 degrees and a 37-degree windchill.

Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, with Game 2 called in the early afternoon. Both games will be televised on FOX Sports Detroit. It's also the date of the MLB Draft for which the Tigers have the first overall selection. When they take the field on Tuesday, they will have had three full days off, a rarity in baseball's regular season.

Yankees pitcher Luis Severino (2-1, 3.50) will now start on Monday at home against the Miami Marlins, while Detroit's Francisco Liriano (1-1, 2.13) will pitch Tuesday against Baltimore.

In both those cases, no ticket exchange is necessary.

The Yankees will return to Detroit on June 4 to play a split doubleheader at 1:10 p.m. and 7:10 p.m., the Tigers announced. An April 4 postponement against the Kansas City Royals will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on April 20.
