Heavy showers forced the suspension of Friday's American League division series game between the New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers.

Major League Baseball officials said the game would resume on Saturday night while the second game of the best-of-five series, originally scheduled for Saturday, was shifted to Sunday.

The series moves to Detroit on Monday.
