The Detroit Tigers saw an early lead wiped out when the opening game of a doubleheader against the host Chicago White Sox was rained out Friday.

The second game was also postponed, too.

The teams will play a straight doubleheader on Saturday, starting at 3:40 p.m. ET. The Tigers and White Sox will then conclude the regular season with a single game Sunday as scheduled, meaning both teams will end the season having played just 161 games.

The scheduled first game Friday was delayed at the start.

Once action started, the Tigers scored a run in the first. Harold Castro and Jeimer Candelario hit back-to-back singles before Miguel Cabrera grounded out, bringing in Castro.

Chicago took a 2-1 lead in the second. Yoan Moncada led off with a single and moved to second on James McCann’s single. An infield hit by Adam Engel with one out loaded the bases for Ryan Cordell, who ripped a two-run double to left.

The Tigers staged a two-out, two-run rally in the third. They loaded the bases on walks to Candelario and Christin Stewart sandwiching a Cabrera single. Dawel Lugo then blooped a double to right, knocking in two runs. Gordon Beckham flied out later in the inning with the bases loaded.

Detroit’s Grayson Greiner led off the fourth with a 429-foot blast to left to make it 4-2 before play was halted in the bottom of the inning, and the game never resumed before the postponement was announced.
