The rainy weather skipped and missed a lot of baseball games during April. Unfortunately, Mother Nature seems like she is playing catch-up during May.
For the second time in less than a week the Tigers have had a postponement of a game due to the rain.
Tonight’s game was one I am sure they would have liked to get in, mainly because the Tigers wouldn’t have seen the Blue Jays again this season, and finding mutual and convenient days to make up a game can be difficult. Not to mention that days are not only well-deserved – they are essential. Teams don’t want to use them playing make-up games.
The Tigers have rescheduled this game for June 27, 2011. Rick Porcello who originally was going to pitch tonight, will miss his turn. Phil Coke will get the start against Boston tomorrow. There will be two games at Fenway before the Tigers head westward to Pittsburgh to face the Pirates in Interleague play this weekend.
