Tigers Vs. Yankees: Game Two Gets Rain Delay In Bottom Of First

The Detroit Tigers set off to avenge a game one loss against the New York Yankees on Saturday, but only got as far as to hold them scoreless through one inning. New York got a pair of hits but gave way to the Tigers in the bottom of the first, when the game was promptly hit with a rain delay.

Danny Worth sacrificed to get Quintin Berry to third base when the delay was called, leaving Berry on third with one out in the game. The rain has died down, just about when the tarp was put up, but there's still no word on when the game will resume at all if it does.

It does seem like it has a good chance to resume, as the rain is already moving out away from the stadium, but if it's too wet, then it's too wet. Still, it doesn't look as though it's going to have to be delayed for another day. Detroit lost game one 9-4 and had game three scheduled for Sunday at 1:05 p.m. eastern. That does open the possibility of a double header.
