Tigers, Yankees postpone 1st game of doubleheader

Tigers and Lugnuts Postponed, Re-scheduled

Due to the ongoing inclement weather hammering MI and the general Great Lakes area this weekend, the doubleheader between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been rescheduled for a future date. NY is coming off a series loss at Boston and they have dropped five of their last eight games.

What is important to remember here is that there are eight future dates in this 2018 baseball season in which both the Tigers and Yankees have scheduled days off.

Hicks, playing just his second game since coming off the disabled list with a Grade I intercostal muscle strain, reached base four times and recorded three RBIs.

The Tigers are turning to righty Mike Fiers (1-0, 0.00 ERA), who struck out 146 hitters in 153 innings past year (28 starts). Detroit is averaging 3.58 runs per game while allowing 4.17. Detroit was only able to squeeze out five runs in four games against the Tribe. The Tigers are also just 1-4 in their last five against a left-handed starter.

Outfielders Leonys Martin and Nicholas Castellanos have led the Tigers' batters so far.

Nick Castellanos was the top hitter for the Tigers entering this series, and he had 14 hits, eight runs and five RBI.

The Yankees are 8-2 in their last 10 during game two of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 Saturday games. Across 215 such plate appearances, he put up a slash line of.350/.377/.596 (compared to his overall season line of.287/.317/.478).

Hicks hit two homers - including a two-run, inside-the-parker in the second inning - and the Yankees ultimately held on for an 8-6 victory over the lowly Tigers on Friday night at Comerica Park.

Mike Fiers had a promising debut for the Tigers last Sunday.

McCann hit a solo home run in the fifth, but Hicks - in only his second game back from a right intercostal strain - made it 6-1 in the sixth with his second homer of the night.
