Tigers and Lugnuts Postponed, Re-scheduled

BC-BBA--Yankees-Tigers

BC-BBA--Yankees-Tigers

When they take the field on Tuesday, they will have had three full days off, a rarity in baseball's regular season.

Liriano will not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Yankees as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

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 two of the doubleheader is still scheduled to begin at 7:10 p.m. Rain was forecast to keep falling until Monday morning. The games will be made up in a split doubleheader on June 4 in Detroit.

The postponement marks the Tigers' fourth of the season, all coming at Comerica Park.

The Tigers initially canceled just Game 1; at about 1 p.m., they made the sensible decision to scratch Game 2, as well. Updates with Game 2 postponed. It's now unclear when Liriano will make his next start.

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