Tuesday night's game between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates has been postponed because of inclement weather. The game was called about two hours before the scheduled first pitch on a snowy day in the Detroit area. Michael Fulmer (1-0) is set to pitch the opener for Detroit, with Spencer Turnbull making his season debut in the second game.
Matt Olson scored from second base on a fielding error by Detroit third baseman Jeimer Candelario with two outs in the ninth inning, rallying the Oakland Athletics past the Tigers 3-2 on Sunday for their eighth straight win. Sean Murphy hit a tying home run in the eighth as the A’s swept the four-game series. “We feel pretty good about the way we’re playing right now,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said.
