Tigers-Twins Game Postponed Thursday
The first game of the Detroit Tigers-Minnesota Twins series at Comerica Park has been postponed after Minnesota players elected not to play Thursday following the police-involved shooting and violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The Tigers announced the game will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader, beginning at 1:10 p.m. Friday. Both games will be seven-inning contests.
