1st game of Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed by rain

1st game of Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed by rain

The first of the Yankees' split doubleheader in Detroit was rained out on Sunday, the teams announced.

The mixture of cold, ice, hail and snow ripping through MI postponed baseball games for the Lansing Lugnuts and the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.

Saturday's game against the New York Yankees at Comerica Park was postponed because of heavy rains that are expected to stay in the area throughout the day.

Both games of Sunday's doubleheader have been postponed due to the weather. It's also the date of the MLB Draft for which the Tigers have the first overall selection.




It's far from a handsome day for baseball in Detroit, so they'll only play one.

Yankees pitcher Luis Severino (2-1, 3.50) will now start on Monday at home against the Florida Marlins, while Detroit's Francisco Liriano (1-1, 2.13) will pitch Tuesday against Baltimore. Yet they're still holding out hope they can play the nightcap, now scheduled for 7:10.

In both those cases, no ticket exchange is necessary. Rain-outs on March 29 and March 31 against the Pittsburgh Pirates have already been made up.

All paid tickets from Saturday's game are valid for entry for the second game of tomorrow's split doubleheader.
