Snow postpones Tigers-Pirates

DETROIT (AP) — Tuesday night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates was been postponed because of inclement weather.

The game was called about two hours before the scheduled first pitch on a snowy day in the Detroit area. The teams will try to play a doubleheader today, with the first seven-inning game starting at 2:10 p.m. EDT and the second scheduled for 6:40 p.m.

Michael Fulmer (1-0) is set to pitch the opener for Detroit, with Spencer Turnbull making his season debut in the second game. Turnbull has been recovering from COVID-19.

Tyler Anderson (1-2) is scheduled to start the opener for Pittsburgh, with the Game 2 starter to be determined.

… The two-game suspension of Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Castellanos for his role in an on-field brawl during the season’s opening weekend was upheld by Major League Baseball special assistant John McHale Jr.

Castellanos will serve the penalty during the first two games of a three-game series against Arizona that began Tuesday.
