Tigers-Royals called because of rain; make-up June 19th

Thursday's game between the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals has been postponed because of rain.

The game was called about an hour before the scheduled first pitch, with temperatures in the 30s and an occasional drizzle. Significantly more rain was expected throughout the day.

No makeup date was announced.

Detroit took the first two games of this three-game series. The Royals come back to Detroit for a three-game set from June 16-18, and both teams have a day off June 19.
