DETROIT (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees have been rained out Saturday, with bad weather threatening to wash away most of the Yankees’ only scheduled visit to the Motor City this season.
New York beat the Tigers 8-6 on Friday night, and the teams will now try to play a split doubleheader Sunday to finish this three-game series — but the weather then may not be any better.
If one or both games are postponed Sunday, the scramble could be on to find a time when the Yankees can come back to Detroit later in the year.
The Tigers would send left-handers Francisco Liriano (1-1) and Matthew Boyd (0-1) to the mound Sunday against New York right-handers Luis Severino (2-1) and Luis Cessa (0-0). The games are scheduled for 1:10 and 7:10 p.m.
