Twins Vs. Tigers: Rain Will Delay Start Of Saturday's Game

The forecast is not pretty near Target Field in Minnesota on Saturday afternoon, but many believed that the Twins-Tigers game would be played and the start of that game would be on time. The tarp was removed from the field shortly before 12 p.m. CT and first pitch was expected to start at 1:10 p.m. CT, as originally scheduled.

The game will not start on time, though:

The reason for the delay is not because of current wet weather, but threatening rains in the area. I guess the teams don't want to start if only to be stopped shortly into the game, possibly wasting the starting pitchers. Seeing as the Twins have used nine starting pitchers this year, not wasting one of their more consistent starters in Pavano is not ideal.
