Both games of Detroit Tigers doubleheader vs. Yankees postponed due to weather

The Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees announced they have cancelled the afternoon portion of Sunday's doubleheader at Comerica Park due to inclement weather.

The doubleheader was set because Saturday was rained out, as the weather tries to wipe away an entire weekend of games. Both games will be televised on FOX Sports Detroit. The Tigers open up a three-game series with the Orioles on Tuesday.

It's far from a lovely day for baseball in Detroit, so they'll only play one.

The airline said police and aviation authorities were handling the matter and refused to provide further information. The passenger described seeing armed personnel in camouflage uniforms assembled in two or three rows.

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

The teams had originally moved Saturday's rained-out contest to Sunday night as part of a split doubleheader, but rain has continued to hit the Detroit area. Fans unable to attend the rescheduled game may exchange their unused tickets at any time for any future similar-or-lesser priced regular season game in the next 12 months, excluding Opening Day next season. Rain-outs on March 29 and March 31 against the Pittsburgh Pirates have already been made up. And the team's sixth game of the season, on April 4 against the Royals, also was postponed.
