Both of the Detroit Tigers’ games against the New York Yankees yesterday were canceled because of bad weather. They’ll be made up in a day-night doubleheader on June 4th.

The Tigers have a scheduled day off today, and will open a home series against the Baltimore Orioles tomorrow night. Pregame coverage will begin at 6:15 on 99.3 The Lift.

Wilmer Flores’ home run in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday. Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin struggled through four innings, throwing 85 pitches, but allowing just one run.
