DETROIT – Do not you just love baseball in early spring?
The Detroit Tigers and the Pittsburgh Pirates missed the opening day on Saturday, two days after bad weather.
The game is being made as part of a split dual on Sunday. The first game will be at 1:10. Game 2 starts at 18:10.
All paid tickets for the Saturday Match apply to the second game on Sunday.
The sky was sunny and clear on early Saturday, but clouds moved in and wind and rain were expected in the early afternoon.
Both teams were probably reluctant to start the game and burn their starting pitcher, especially after the game on Friday went 13 innings.
Michael Fulmer will start Game 1
Chad Kuhl will be in for Pirates in Game 2 while the Tigers I have not announced a starter.
Both teams received a 26th duty roster on Sunday and the Tigers were able to use their starter. Chad Bell and Ryan Carpenter could both be candidates.
The Tigers have scheduled six games in the five-day circuit that starts on Sunday, so they'll eventually need an extra starter.
