Tigers, Indians postponed after delay of over 4 hours

The Tigers and Indians would need to play a makeup game Monday if it could affect who makes the postseason or how teams are seeded

Cleveland Indians – Cleveland, Ohio

DETROIT (AP) – Thursday’s game between the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians has been postponed because of bad weather, a move that could force the teams to squeeze in a makeup game next week if it needs to be played because of postseason implications.

The Tigers and Indians played a rain-shortened game Wednesday night, which Detroit won 6-3 in five innings, but the scheduled series finale Thursday never began. It was called after a delay of 4 hours, 13 minutes.

Cleveland has clinched the AL Central. The Tigers are one game behind Baltimore for the American League’s second wild card.

Detroit begins a three-game series at Atlanta on Friday night, and Cleveland starts a three-game set at Kansas City. The Tigers and Indians would need to play a makeup game Monday if it could affect who makes the postseason or how teams are seeded.
