Game 147 & 148: Tigers at White Sox

PREGAME(S): The Tigers and White Sox will try and make-up last night’s rainout with a natural double header. Although this doesn’t sound promising either given the weather.

Game 1 will feature Kenny Rogers and Javier Vazquez. Game 2 will be Zach Miner and somebody wearing a White Sox uni. As for the Verlander/Danks match-up that was supposed to be last night? That’ll happen Sunday night. Maybe.

Game 1 is a Fox national game which is slated to start at 3:55 and Game 2 should start about a half hour following the completion.

As for the TV info, if there is a second game today, it will not be televised. FSN Detroit relayed that they made an effort to get game 2 on, but couldn’t secure production and transmission facilities on short notice. If one of the games get rained out and there is a need for a split DH on Sunday (the regular game is an 8p ESPN tilt), it isn’t known if the early game would be on. FSN will be exploring the possibility.

UPDATE: Both ends postponed. They’ll try again for a DH tomorrow. Only the evening game will be televised with FSN running into the same issues. Keep in mind they were supposed to be done with this series on Friday night with the other 2 scheduled for national tv.

    What are they doing about tickets? Are the emptying the stadium between games?

    From the White Sox’ web site:

    Fans may exchange tickets to Friday’s canceled game for tickets of equal or lesser value (based on availability) to any future regular-season White Sox game. Parking also may be exchanged for any future regular-season game. All exchanges should be made at the U.S. Cellular Field Box Office, either by mail (333 W. 35th Street, Chicago, IL 60616) or in person.

    Also, Ozzie Guillen said that Lance Broadway will likely pitch the second game today. That name sounds made up, so who knows who will really pitch for them. Maybe Dirk Strongman or Max Power?

    Game 1 postponed because of more rain. Sigh. Fox is showing Brewers at Phillies instead.

    Well, they don’t have any more open dates in common between now and the end of the season.

    I’m not an expert, but I guess they’ll try for two tomorrow and then only make up the third game if it’s needed at the end of the season.

    They’ll have to come back to play the third game at the end of the season, won’t they? At least if the Twinkies and Sox finish within 1/2 game…

    With the big September rosters, they should play 3. Give fans their money’s worth.
