The three-game series finale between the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians set for Sunday has been postponed by rain and re-scheduled for Aug. 9. A wet forecast on Mother’s Day forced the postponement about three hours before the scheduled first pitch at Progressive Field. Cincinnati's Wade Miley pitched the season's fourth no-hitter on Friday night, a 3-0 win, and the Indians bounced back Saturday with a 9-2 pounding of the Reds.
The series finale between the Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers scheduled for Sunday at Comerica Park was postponed because of rain before the game got started. The game will be made up as part of a day-night doubleheader on July 16, which originally had been set as a night game in Detroit. Minnesota won Friday’s series opener 7-3 after two rain delays, then lost Saturday by the same score.
Determined to put an embarrassing night of unwelcome history behind them, the Indians came out swinging Saturday night. César Hernández connected for a three-run triple, José Ramírez had two RBIs and Aaron Civale pitched seven strong innings to stay unbeaten as Cleveland rebounded after being no-hit for the second time in 24 days by belting the Cincinnati Reds 9-2. The Indians became the 18th team to be no-hit twice in the same season on Friday, when Cincinnati's Wade Miley shut them down for the majors' fourth no-no in 2021.
