Tigers Game Against Royals Rescheduled Due To Rain

DETROIT (AP) – The Kansas City Royals’ game in Detroit against the Tigers has been postponed by rain.

The teams have scheduled a makeup game for Sept. 1 at 1:05 p.m. That was supposed to be an off day for both teams after playing three games against each other Aug. 29-31 in Detroit.

Sunday’s game was called a couple hours before the first pitch, with the steady rain at Comerica Park showing no signs of letting up. Detroit was set to try for a three-game sweep of the Royals and its eighth straight victory overall.

Both teams plan to push their starting rotations back a day, meaning Max Scherzer (6-0) will start for the Tigers on Monday night against Toronto, and Kyle Davies (1-5) will take the mound for the Royals when they host Cleveland.
