The teams are scheduled to play a split doubleheader Sunday to make up for the rain out. The games are scheduled for 1:10 p.m. and 7:10 p.m.

This is the Yankees' only trip to Comerica Park this season, so the teams would prefer not to reschedule the game for later this summer.

New York won the first game of the series Friday night, outscoring the Tigers 8-6.
