First game of Detroit Tigers doubleheader vs. Yankees postponed due to weather

First game of Detroit Tigers doubleheader vs. Yankees postponed due to weather

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

Sunday's doubleheader between the host Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been postponed due to inclement weather, the Tigers announced. The games will be made up as a day-night doubleheader on June 4.

Locally, the Lansing Lugnuts were scheduled for a first pitch at 6:05 p.m. ET against the West Michigan Whitecaps.

The forecast in Detroit on Sunday called for heavy rain into the evening and potentially an ice storm, with conditions not expected to clear up until Monday morning.

Responding officers found his wife, Natasha McKinney, 34, on the floor in a bedroom of the residence that they shared. Those arrested, Mr Daplah said, had been charged based on Section 275 of the Criminal Offences Act 1960 (Act 29).

The postponement marks the Tigers' fourth of the season, all coming at Comerica Park. And the team's sixth game of the season, on April 4 against the Royals, also was postponed.

The Tigers initially canceled just Game 1; at about 1 p.m., they made the sensible decision to scratch Game 2, as well.

The Tigers will stay in rotation through Sunday's split doubleheader.

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. All tickets from Saturday's contest that was rained out will be valid on Sunday night, while tickets from Sunday's cancellation can be used on the to-be-determined make-up date.
