DETROIT -- Wednesday's game between the Rays and the Tigers was postponed after a two-hour delay followed two-and-a-half innings of play. The game was rescheduled for June 13 at 7:05 p.m. ET. It will be replayed in its entirety.
The Tigers held a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning before the game was delayed at 2:06 p.m. It was officially postponed at 4:12 p.m.
"It's not a bad thing, based on we've got some guys who have been struggling a little bit," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "Maybe by the time this game is replayed, we'll be a little bit friskier at the plate."

SAN FRANCISCO --  While Buster Posey's left-ankle injury overshadowed everything else that happened in AT&T Park on Wednesday night, the Giants also suffered a second straight disappointing loss on their home field despite yet another unbelievable comeback.
Down four runs entering the bottom of the ninth, San Francisco rallied to tie the game and send it into extra innings but ultimately fell short when Scott Cousins ran over Posey and scored on Emilio Bonifacio's sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, giving the Marlins a 7-6 victory.
"What a comeback. To come up short, that's a tough one. The way it ended, that makes it even harder," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "But the guys battled back hard."
