Makeup game with KC scheduled as August doubleheader
The Tigers and Royals finally settled on a makeup date for their April 23 rainout, slating it for the first game of a split doubleheader on Friday, Aug. 16. All tickets from the April 23 game will be honored for the 1:08 p.m. start that day, with no ticket exchange necessary, but separate tickets are needed for the 7:08 p.m. nightcap.
The reschedule tacks another game onto what was already a four-game series, giving the two teams a rare five-game set. It comes at the end of a 17-day stretch where the Tigers play every day, and is part of a eight-day homestand.
