This week was the Yankees' only scheduled trip to Detroit, but now the games will have to be made up later this summer.

Sunday's doubleheader between the host Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees has been postponed due to inclement weather, the Tigers announced.

The teams had originally moved Saturday's rained-out contest to Sunday night as part of a split doubleheader, but rain has continued to hit the Detroit area. The Tigers open up a three-game series with the Orioles on Tuesday.

Game 1 was scratched about three hours before the scheduled first pitch, with Game 2 called in the early afternoon. The teams are still set to square off Sunday night as previously scheduled, with first pitch slated for 7:10 p.m. ET.

Cambridge Mayor Marc McGovern said video taken by an onlooker shows an officer punching the man, who is black, several times. He is being charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, assault, assault and battery, and resisting arrest.

It's far from a handsome day for baseball in Detroit, so they'll only play one.

The Tigers plan to start Francisco Liriano on Tuesday, Matthew Boyd on Wednesday and Jordan Zimmermann on Thursday.

In both those cases, no ticket exchange is necessary. Rain-outs on March 29 and March 31 against the Pittsburgh Pirates have already been made up.

All paid tickets from Saturday's game are valid for entry for the second game of tomorrow's split doubleheader.
