Add another Tigers game to Sunday night package
The Tigers-Red Sox ALCS rematch was appealing enough for ESPN to schedule it for two Sunday night games in a four-week span — last month at Fenway Park, then last Sunday at Comerica Park. The Tigers-Rays rematch next month in Detroit is a little different, but ESPN is picking up that Sunday game, too, for Sunday Night Baseball. Thus, what was originally scheduled for a 1:08pm ET first pitch July 6 is now pushed back for 8:07, giving Detroiters coming back home at the end of the holiday weekend a few extra hours.
ESPN also picked up the July 4 game of the Tigers-Rays series. That game remains a 7:08 first pitch. In addition, the Tigers-Rangers game on Wednesday, June 25 in Texas has been picked up for an ESPN2 broadcast. That game starts at 8:05 ET. Both games will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit in Michigan and Northwest Ohio.
