There is no scheduled date to make-up the game, but Chris Iott of has already looked ahead on the two team’s schedules and Aug. 3, 17, and 24 as well as Sept. 17 are mutual off-days between the two clubs. It appears very likely one of these four days will be the make-up date in Cincinnati.

Just another reason to hate interleague play. Rather than the Tigers keeping all their off-days in August and September, which is the home stretch of the season, they will have to fly into Cincinnati for just one game.

Detroit will play the New York Yankees this weekend. Friday’s projected starters were originally Alfredo Simon and Adam Warren, but manager Brad Ausmus will likely start Justin Verlander, who was scheduled for Thursday, on Friday.
