Tigers-Yankees Game 1 Postponed Until Saturday

NEW YORK (AP) — The playoff opener between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been suspended because of rain in the second inning, perhaps wiping out the ace of each pitching staff
for a few days.

Justin Verlander started for Detroit against CC Sabathia on Friday night in a highly anticipated matchup between two of the game’s best pitchers.

The score was tied at 1 in the middle of the second inning when play was halted.

According to a rule adopted by Major League Baseball two years ago, the game is not postponed. Instead, it will pick up Saturday night at the point of suspension — weather permitting — with the Yankees coming to bat in the second inning.

Game 2 will be moved back to Sunday.
