There was an unlikely winner in game one of the Tigers/Yankees ALDS matchup from the Bronx and that winner was Mother Nature herself.

The game ended up being postponed due to rain in the middle of the second after both teams being tied 1-1.

Delmon Young hit a home run for Detroit in the top of the first to right field while Derek Jeter scored to tie things up after an Alex Rodriguez RBI in the bottom of the first.

With tonight’s delay Game one will resume tomorrow at 8:37PM which would’ve been the original start time for game 2. Tigers manager Jim Leyland said he probably wouldn’t make any adjustments to his lineup tomorrow against RHP Nova considering he had things set Friday night for Sabathia who is a lefty. In addition to this the game will be picked up right where it left on per the new MLB postseason rules. Game 2 will now be on Sunday at 3:37PM in the Bronx with game 3 being Monday in Detroit.
