Rain delayed Game 1 of the ALCS between the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers twice on Saturday night. On Sunday, the weather hasn't gotten any nicer, and already the decision has been made to postpone Game 2 of the ALCS until Monday.
Game 2 was set to be played at 7:45 p.m. on Sunday night, but first pitch is now set for 4:19 p.m. on Monday. This means the travel day has been eliminated, and there will now be day games on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (if necessary). This is not an ideal situation for either team, but just like the New York Yankees series, weather is causing changes to the schedule to be made.
When Game 2 does take place on Monday, Max Scherzer will get the start for the Tigers. Derek Holland is set to go for the Rangers, and it doesn't appear any changes have been made to either rotation despite all of the weather issues. The Tigers are going to start Doug Fister in Game 3 and Rick Porcello in Game 4, and Justin Verlander will make the start in Game 5 if it takes place.
