Twins, Nats game postponed until Sunday due to rain

Tropical Storm Andrea has postponed Friday night's Twins vs. Nats game until Sunday night.

Although it was unforeseen, the Minnesota Twins will get their second day off of the week Friday.

As Tropical Storm Andrea moves up the East Coast, Twins and Washington Nationals officials decided to postpone the teams' scheduled 6:05 p.m meeting until Sunday, creating a day-night doubleheader at Nationals Park. The teams will square off at 12:35 p.m. as originally slated, then turn around at 6:05 p.m. to complete their three-game series. Both games will air on FOX Sports North.

The storm zipped through the Carolinas on Friday morning and is expected to hit the Washington, D.C., area somewhere around game time, according to the National Weather Service.

At 3:05 p.m. Saturday, Minnesota will face a team coming off a second straight day of rest. The Nationals' Thursday game against the New York Mets also was also rained out.
