Sunday without baseball: Detroit Tigers-Minnesota Twins rained out

A Spring and Summer Sunday without Detroit Tigers baseball is no fun, but alas we’ll have one today as Mother Nature decided the Tigers played too many games in a row and dumped too much rain on Minneapolis, thus raining out Sunday’s rubbermatch at Target Field.

The Tigers were on a roll there for awhile, playing 11 games in a row since their last rainout. Now they’ll be off the next two days because of a scheduled off-day Monday, play in U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday and Wednesday, and take another day off Thursday.


This likely means Justin Verlander will be pushed back to starting Tuesday’s game against the White Sox, but that hasn’t been made official yet nor has a makeup day been scheduled.

The Tigers visit Minnesota twice more this season, but not until Aug. 22-24, and then again Sept. 15-17, each three-game series.

So even though there is no Tigers’ baseball today, no Tigers’ fan is missing the weather-proof Metrodome, AKA the House of Horrors for Detroit sports.
