Twins-Mets game postponed due to weather
MINNEAPOLIS — Sunday’s game between the Minnesota Twins and New York Mets has been postponed due to inclement weather. The game will be made up Aug. 19 at 1:10 p.m.
Temperatures were predicted to once again be in the 30s for the scheduled first pitch at 1 p.m., and a wintry mix of snow and rain was also expected. The Twins announced the postponement just before 9 a.m. Sunday morning.
Fans with tickets for Sunday’s game can either use their ticket for the makeup game on Aug. 19 or use the value of the ticket as a voucher toward a future regular-season game in 2013.
Aug. 19 was a mutual off-day for the Twins and Mets, who were not scheduled to meet again this season. For Minnesota, the makeup game follows a seven-game homestand at Target Field.
Sunday’s postponement means the Twins will push back their starting rotation a day. Kevin Correia (0-1, 3.14 ERA) was scheduled to pitch in Sunday’s series finale against the Mets, but will instead start Monday against the Angels. Mike Pelfrey (1-1, 7.36) will start Tuesday, followed by right-hander Vance Worley (0-2, 10.50) on Wednesday. The Twins will face Joe Blanton (0-2, 9.00 ERA), Jason Vargas (0-1, 4.76) and Tommy Hanson (1-1, 6.55) when Los Angeles comes to town Monday.
