Tigers postpone game one of Sunday's split doubleheader

Postado Abril 16, 2018

Cold, wet weather was the victor again at Comerica Park, as the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees had both games of their doubleheader postponed.

Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch.

Both were called off at the same time because Yankees player rep David Robertson had to negotiate a makeup date with Major League Baseball, which didn't want the game on June 4 before day one of its draft is scheduled for that day.

Nonstop rain on Saturday continued Sunday morning, and according to local forecasts, the chances are very good that it won't stop until around sunrise Monday morning. The Yankees won 8-6 behind two Aaron Hicks homers in Friday's game.

Game 2 was still scheduled for 7:10 p.m. Tickets from Sunday's postponed game will be valid for the make up game that is yet to be announced.
