Game 4 Reportedly Pushed Back An Hour, Further Delays Possible

With light rain showers around Detroit showing no sign of stopping, Fox Sports Southwest reporter Anthony Andro is reporting that the start of Game 4 of the ALCS is being pushed back an hour:

The latest forecast gives a 60% chance of rain over the next four hours, and a tarp is still covering the infield at Comerica Park.

Unfortunately for a series that has already seen one rain-out, the Detroit forecast isn't getting much better over the rest of the week. There's a 30% chance of rain during the day on Thursday and a 60% chance at night. 

Further postponements will wreak havoc on the pitching rotations of both teams, though a delay might benefit the Tigers more, as two players in the heart of their line-up -- Victor Martinez and Delmon Young -- are struggling with injuries.
