Yankees vs. Tigers: Rain delaying start of Game 4

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports - Presswire

Game 4 of the ALCS between the Yankees and Tigers are in a rain delay, even though it's not yet actually raining in Detroit.

If you're waiting for the first pitch of game four of the American League Championship Series, you're going to have to wait a bit.

Wednesday's game between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees in Detroit is currently in a rain delay.

Despite sunny skies in the area all day, MLB has delayed the start of the game due to the threat of rain.

Yes, that's right, it's not actually raining

MLB officials are expected to make a call on when to start the game at 8:15 p.m., at which point the first pitch would not be thrown for at least another 30 minutes, as members of Comerica Park's grounds crew and umpires would need time to get the field ready for play.

The national radar shows a band of strong storms moving into the state of Michigan, but there's no guarantee that severe weather will actually descend over the city of Detroit.

Down 0-3 in the series, the Yankees are looking to stave off elimination, as their ace C.C Sabathia will duel against the Tigers Max Scherzer .
