DETROIT (AP) — The game between the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers has been postponed because of bad weather.

The Tigers said the Central division rivals’ first meeting of the season will be rescheduled — but not during this series.

Snowfall from an overnight storm was sticking to the grass in the area, and temperatures in the low 20s were predicted for Tuesday evening.

Detroit beat the Indians in 15 of 19 matchups last year and won their third straight division title.
