DETROIT (AP) — The game between the Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox has been postponed because of rain and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader on Aug. 6.
The teams will wrap up the series on Sunday with a different approach to pitching. The Tigers will bump left-hander Daniel Norris (0-0, 4.32 ERA) to Sunday, while the White Sox will skip right-hander Ervin Santana (0-1, 10.38) in favor of right-hander Reynaldo Lopez (1-2, 8.84).
Norris will make his first start of the season and seek his first win since Sept. 28, 2017.
