Fans hoping for a great day at the ballpark on Father's Day were interrupted by plenty of rain, as Sunday's Detroit-Colorado series finale was forced into a weather delay in the top of the 4th inning.
The Tigers racked up eight hits and four runs against Rockies starter Jeremy Guthrie over just three innings to grab a 4-0 lead, and definitely appeared primed for a big offensive day before the rain forced the two teams into their respective locker rooms. Detroit pitcher Max Scherzer has been otherwise perfect for the Tigers aside from scattering five hits, and has already tallied six strikeouts over 3.2 innings on the mound.
Detroit catcher Gerald Laird broke the scoreless tie in the 2nd frame with an RBI double that plated outfielder Don Kelly. Prince Fielder then proceeded to pave the way for a huge 3rd inning with an RBI double of his own that allowed Ramon Santiago to step to the plate with the bases loaded and knocked two more runs home.
