First game of Yankees-Tigers doubleheader postponed on Sunday

For the fourth time this season, a Detroit Tigers game has been postponed because of inclement weather.

This is already the fifth day (now six games) in the first 2+ weeks of the season that the Tigers have had games postponed due to weather.

The Yankees and Tigers will try to play a split doubleheader on Sunday.

All paid tickets from the game originally scheduled Sunday (Game 1) will be valid for entry for the second game of the split doubleheader on June 4 at 7:10 p.m.

A large storm featuring rain, ice, and snow has pounded the Midwest and Great Lakes regions while severely hampering baseball games all weekend. If you had a ticket to Saturday's game, you can use it for the second game of the split doubleheader Sunday. No ticket exchange is necessary.

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

The mutual agreement on June 4th also happens to be the first day of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft, in which the Tigers hold the No. 1 overall pick.

Yankees pitcher Luis Severino (2-1, 3.50) will now start on Monday at home against the Florida Marlins, while Detroit's Francisco Liriano (1-1, 2.13) will pitch Tuesday against Baltimore.

If the teams are unable to play on Sunday, keep an eye on June 4 for a potential make-up date.
