Tigers, Giants postponed after five-hour delay

DETROIT (AP) — Sunday’s game between the Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants was postponed after a mostly rainless delay of more than five hours.

The game will be made up on July 24.

The first pitch was scheduled for 1:10 EDT, but the Tigers announced ahead of time it would be delayed. Light rain quickly stopped, but with more forecast, the fans were told at 2 p.m. that the game would be delayed for at least another hour.

The next update came almost three hours later, saying the teams would discuss the situation at 5:15 p.m..

No further update was given until the postponement was announced at 6:15 p.m. Shortly afterward, the Tigers issued a statement saying all fans who were at Comerica Park on Sunday would be contacted and offered complimentary tickets to a future game.

The Giants are flying to Miami for a Monday night game against the Marlins. RHP Logan Webb (0-3) will start the opener of the three-game series.

The Tigers will host the Cleveland Guardians on Monday with snow showers in the forecast. They did not make an immediate announcement about their pitching rotation.
