'when the second [rain delay] came about, [taking justin verlander out was] a no-brainer,' leyland said. 'i think that this was a little bit of a weird night, obviously, with the rain the way it was. ... and i guess it's a little weird verlander was involved in both of these rain situations.'"
justin verlander pitches in both opening games of the two series thus far and is knocked out of both by rain delays/postponements. and then game 2 of this series, scheduled for sunday evening, is moved to monday afternoon because of rain in the forecast.
