Both games of Tigers-Yankees split doubleheader postponed


The first game had been planned as a make-up game after Saturday's game between the teams had been rained out.

With AP Photos.Both games of Sunday's doubleheader between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers have been postponed because of rain.

All paid tickets from the game originally scheduled Sunday (Game 1) will be valid for entry for the second game of the split doubleheader on June 4 at 7:10 p.m.

The Yankees have a 1-0 lead on the only series between the two teams to take place in Detroit this season.

Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, with Game 2 called in the early afternoon.

A new date for the theme night has yet to be announced.

Rain and frigid temperatures forced the postponement of both games of their doubleheader on Sunday.

A large storm featuring rain, ice, and snow has pounded the Midwest and Great Lakes regions while severely hampering baseball games all weekend.

So now with the Yankees in the rearview mirror, the Tigers will have a scheduled day off on Monday - probably a good thing, with no ending in sight for this weather - before resuming their current 10-game homestand on Tuesday with a three-game set against the Orioles.

The Tigers will stay in rotation through Sunday's split doubleheader. Detroit ranks second-to-last in all of baseball in team batting average (.216) through Friday's 8-6 loss to the Yankees; 25th in team slugging (.327).
