Windy and Wet: Twins at Tigers 9/28

It’s been raining off and on throughout the day in Detroit and the forecast sounds like that could continue throughout the night. The hope is just that it’s light enough for the game to be completed.

Right now it’s close to 6:00 ET, crews have the tarp half off and are working on the mound. I guess that’s a good sign. Of course, even if the rain lets up there is going to be plenty of wind so both starters — Rick Porcello and Nick Blackburn — will try to have their sinkers working tonight.

One big thing to note today is that FS North has decided to pick up Thursday’s contest so all four of the Twins-Tigers games will be broadcast locally in the Twin Cities. For those of you watching nationally, MLB Network is televising tonight, Tuesday and Thursday. ESPN will have Wednesday’s contest.
