Rays-Twins game postponed because of rain

The Minnesota Twins have postponed their game with the Tampa Bay

Rays because of heavy rain in the Twin Cities.

The Twins made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon, about six

hours before first pitch was scheduled. The game is scheduled to be

made up Thursday night as part of a day-night doubleheader. The

first game of the twin bill will be played at 12:10 p.m. Central


It’s the second time the Twins have postponed a home game

because of weather this season. They only had to do it once last

year in the first season of outdoor baseball at Target Field.

Francisco Liriano was scheduled to pitch for the Twins on

Tuesday night against Wade Davis. The teams did not immediately

announce how they will handle the pitching matchups.
