DETROIT – Tuesday’s Detroit Tigers game against the Pittsburgh Pirates has been postponed due to weather, and the two teams will play a doubleheader on Wednesday.

The Tigers announced the postponement just after 3 p.m. Tuesday (May 3). First pitch was scheduled for 7:10 p.m.

Wednesday’s straight doubleheader will begin at 1:10 p.m., with the second game starting shortly after the first ends. Both games will be nine innings long.

Storms and showers are expected to continue into the evening Tuesday in Detroit, which sparked this decision. Wednesday’s forecast calls for some rain in the morning, but should be clear skies for first pitch.

Tuesday night’s game was also Bark at the Park, so sorry to all the pups out there. It has been moved to the Aug. 31 game.
