The White Sox and Tigers scheduled doubleheader Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field has been postponed due to rain.

Play was halted at 5:33 p.m. with the Tigers leading the Sox 4-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning. The game was canceled at 6:45 p.m.

The teams will play a straight doubleheader Saturday beginning at 2:40 p.m. and play one game Sunday, meaning both teams will play 161 games, one short of the full 162-game schedule.

In Game 1 (NBCSCH), Tigers lefty Matthew Boyd (9-11, 4.57) will oppose Sox righty Reynaldo López (9-15, 5.57). In Game 2, (Ch. 9), Tigers lefty Tyler Alexander (1-4, 4.99) starts against Sox righty Iván Nova (11-12, 4.80).

From the White Sox:

Fans with game tickets, parking coupons and Huntington Bank Stadium Club passes to tomorrow night’s originally scheduled 6:10 p.m. game can attend both games with their ticket and parking pass. Parking lots will open at 1 p.m and gates at 2 p.m. The first 10,000 fans entering the ballpark prior to tomorrow’s 2:40 p.m. start will receive the Irish flat cap giveaway presented by The Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade as part of “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day.”

Fans with game tickets, parking coupons and Huntington Bank Stadium Club passes for today’s doubleheader (September 27) have the option of attending tomorrow’s games by exchanging their tickets at the box office prior to entry. Fans also can apply the value of their September 27 tickets, parking coupons and stadium club passes to any future regular season White Sox home game, including the 2020 season, even if they entered the ballpark for today’s game. All exchanges must be done at the Guaranteed Rate Field box office during regular business hours.
