Miguel Cabrera's chase for 3,000 hits will wait another day.
The Detroit Tigers and Colorado Rockies postponed Friday's game, scheduled for 7:10 p.m., because of inclement weather at Comerica Park in Detroit.
Friday's postponed game will be made up as the second game of a split nine-inning doubleheader Saturday, following the originally scheduled game at 1:10 p.m. The second game will begin at 6:40 p.m.

Rainfall began in the late afternoon and is expected to continue throughout the night. The grounds crew pulled the tarp onto the field at 5:34 p.m., and the game was officially postponed at 6:20 p.m.
All paid tickets from Friday's postponed game are valid for Game 2 of the doubleheader or can be exchanged for any game this season.
The only way for Game 2 tickets (Friday's postponed game) to be exchanged for Game 1 tickets is in person at the box office, which opened at 9 a.m. — instead of 10 a.m. — Saturday at Comerica Park.
Every fan with a ticket to Friday's postponed game, the Tigers sent an email offer around 9 p.m. Friday with the choice to purchase a ticket to Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader (50% off select seats) and keep their Game 2 ticket to avoid the exchange process and attend both games.
For Saturday, Tigers left-hander Tarik Skubal will start Game 1, with righty Beau Brieske making his MLB debut in Game 2. Skubal is slated to face Rockies righty Antonio Senzatela, and Brieske is lined up against lefty Austin Gomber.
The third and final game of the series is set for 1:10 p.m. Sunday.
