Saturday's Cleveland Guardians game postponed by threat of stormy weather

It marks the sixth time already this season the Guardians have had a home game rained out. The matchup has been rescheduled for July 14.

CLEVELAND — The threat of thunderstorms and an ominous forecast postponed Saturday's game between the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Guardians more than three hours before the first pitch.

The Tigers were taking infield practice when the game was called at 2:45 p.m. The game was scheduled to start at 6:10.

The rainout will be made up on July 14, a previously mutual off day for the AL Central rivals.

This is the fifth weather postponement for the Guardians at home this season. Cleveland was also rained out Wednesday night against Cincinnati and made up the next day.

FORECAST: Weekend cold front on the way!

The Guardians will push back their rotation on Sunday with Shane Bieber starting the scheduled 1:40 p.m. start. Detroit's pitching plans were not immediately known.

Cleveland won the series opener 6-1 on Friday night.
