New York beat the Tigers 8-6 on Friday night, and the teams will now try to play a split doubleheader Sunday to finish this three-game series -- but the weather then may not be any better.
If one or both games are postponed Sunday, the scramble could be on to find a time when the Yankees can come back to Detroit later in the year.
The Tigers would send left-handers Francisco Liriano (1-1) and Matthew Boyd (0-1) to the mound Sunday against New York right-handers Luis Severino (2-1) and Luis Cessa (0-0). The games are scheduled for 1:10 and 7:10 p.m.
"It doesn't look very good, but we'll just try and have a good day of rest today," New York manager Aaron Boone said. "Some guys getting a little bit of work in now, and prepare ourselves like we are getting ready to go tomorrow, and then we'll see what Mother Nature has for us."
The teams have a mutual off day June 4, when New York would be traveling between road games at Baltimore and Toronto.
