Indians, Twins postponed by rain
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Cleveland-Minnesota game has been postponed by rain.
The Twins and Indians were supposed to start a three-game series Friday night, but a cold rain fell steadily in the afternoon and showed no sign of letting up as game time neared. The decision was made to call the game about a half-hour before first pitch.
No makeup date was immediately scheduled. The Twins said it would be when the Indians return to Minnesota, either July 18-20 or September 16-18.
This is the second postponed game in Target Field history.
The timing wasn’t bad for the Twins, who have Joe Mauer and Tsuyoshi Nishioka on the disabled list and already counted Justin Morneau and Delmon Young out of the lineup for Friday against the league-leading Indians.
