Intense and lasting rainfall throughout the morning and afternoon Friday forced the teams to cancel the first games back from the All-Star break. The Tigers were supposed to host the Twins at 2:10 p.m. to make up the Mother’s Day rainout back on May 9.
Friday’s originally scheduled game at 7:10 p.m. is also postponed.
The first postponed game has been rescheduled for 1:10 p.m. Saturday (July 17). Detroit and Minnesota were originally scheduled to play at 6:10 p.m. Saturday, so now, both games will be seven innings as part of a split doubleheader.
The second postponed game from Friday has been rescheduled for 2:10 p.m. Aug. 30. That was originally supposed to be an off day for the Tigers in between a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays and a three-game series with the Oakland Athletics. Both the Toronto and Oakland series are at Comerica Park, so the Aug. 30 game won’t require the Tigers to adjust their travel schedule.
