Detroit Tigers-New York Yankees rainout to be made up today in a doubleheader
DETROIT (AP) — CC Sabathia’s next trip to the mound will have to wait a bit.
The New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers were rained out Wednesday night, and the game was rescheduled as part of a traditional doubleheader starting at 1:10 p..m today.
Sabathia, who has dealt with right knee problems this season, had his start pushed back to the second game.
The 39-year-old Sabathia (5-8) hasn’t pitched since Aug. 30. The Yankees left-hander was activated from the injured list Wednesday.
J.A. Happ (12-8) is set to start the opener for the Yankees against Detroit’s Matthew Boyd (8-10), who was supposed to pitch Wednesday. Spencer Turnbull (3-14) starts the second game for the Tigers against Sabathia.
The last-place Tigers beat the AL East-leading Yankees 12-11 Tuesday night.
