Rain postpones Tigers-Royals series opener

Post  Admin on Wed Apr 24, 2013 5:03 am

The Detroit Tigers’ series opener against the Kansas City Royals was postponed due to rain. Scheduled starters, Max Scherzer and Wade Davis, will start Wednesday's game instead. While the Tigers pushed everybody back a day in their rotation, the Royals will skip Luis Mendoza, who was originally scheduled to start Wednesday. That sets up a Thursday afternoon battle of aces Justin Verlander and James Shields.

As for a make-up date, the Royals return to Detroit for weekend series in August and September, the earlier one a four-game set. The two teams could schedule a doubleheader during one of those series, or schedule it on a common off-day. They both have an off-day on August 19th, after the four-game series, but playing then would require player approval, since it would have both teams playing about four weeks between off-days.
