Detroit Tigers Playoff Game 1 Rained Out

Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees - Game 1

The Tigers and Yankees both sent their aces to the mound to start the American League Divisional Series, and both didn’t get far before the rains came. Verlander pitched just one inning and gave up a run, while C.C. Sabbathia of the Yankees threw two innings and also surrendered one run. After the game went into rain delay, the stroms intensified and the game was called after more than an hour’s interruption.
Game 1 will be tomorrow night at Yankee Stadium (weather permitting) at 8:30 and Game 2 will be on Sunday afternoon at 3. Sunday was originally scheduled as an off day/travel day. Both teams now must decide when to bring back thier best starting pitchers. Verlander threw 25 pitches in his one inning, while Sabbathia threw 27 in two innings. It is unlikely that either will pitch tomorrow, but possible that they could go Sunday. Both the Tigers and Yankees had hoped to be able to use their aces in Game 1 and possibly Game 4 or Game 5 if needed. Mother Nature has thrown a monkey wrench into those plans. Doug Fister will start tomorrow night for the Tigers against New York’s Ivan Nova. That is, if the rain ever lets up.
