Tigers-Rays underway after rain delay

The Detroit News
Comerica Park is the site of Sunday's series finale between the Tigers and Rays.

The start of Sunday’s Detroit Tigers vs. Tampa Bay Rays game at Comerica Park was delayed by rain.

The game was scheduled to start at 1:10 p.m. but the first pitch was 1:40.

Sunday’s Detroit forecast called for clearing skies with temperatures in the high-70s and low-80s for the remainder of the afternoon, so the Tigers should not encounter any more delays.

The Tigers are sending right-hander Buck Farmer (2-0, 3.52) to the mound against right-hander Jake Faria (2-0, 1.42).

The Tigers won the first two games of the series before dropping Saturday afternoon’s game, 3-2.
