MINNEAPOLIS — The Twins saw their scheduled game on Sunday against the Mariners postponed due to wintry conditions and it will be made up on Monday, May 14 at 6:10 p.m. CT, on a mutual off-day for the two clubs.
The announcement was made roughly three hours before the scheduled first pitch of 1:10 p.m. CT. Sunday’s forecast called for a high of 32 degrees in the Minneapolis area with a chance of snow in the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to climb slightly to 40 degrees for the Twins’ series opener against the Astros on Monday at Target Field. The Mariners will move on to Kansas City to open a series with the Royals on Monday.
The Twins will shuffle their starting rotation as a result, with right-hander Lance Lynn getting pushed back from his scheduled start on Sunday to start the series opener against Houston. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi is slated to start on Tuesday and he’ll be followed by right-hander Kyle Gibson on Wednesday.
Thursday’s starter against the White Sox has yet to be announced, as it’s the first time the club will need a fifth starter this season, but it could be right-hander Phil Hughes who threw five innings with Class A Advanced Fort Myers on Thursday.
Fans who purchased tickets for Sunday’s game may either use them to get into the makeup game on May 14 or exchange them for any other Twins home regular season game in 2018. Unused tickets may be exchanged at the Target Field Ticket Office.
Six more Major League Baseball games were wiped out Sunday, running this season’s total number of postponements to 21 in only 2 1/2 weeks. It’s baseball’s highest number through the end of April since it had 26 in 2007, and there are still a couple weeks to go this month.
The last time six games were wiped out in a single day was Sept. 12, 2008, and that situation was partly caused by Hurricane Ike battering the Gulf Coast. There was more dicey weather in the forecast for Monday, and Boston postponed its annual Patriots’ Day game for the first time since 1984.
“If it was up to me, no one would play north of Atlanta or east of Colorado in the first few weeks, but that’s not going to happen,” Braves reliever Peter Moylan said.
Aaron Judge and the Yankees were set to play a doubleheader against the Tigers after a rainout on Saturday, but the twin bill was pulled, too, with icicles all over Comerica Park. The last three games of Minnesota’s series at Target Field against the Chicago White Sox were lost to rain, then a blizzard.
Also postponed were Blue Jays at Indians, and Braves at Cubs one day after the teams played through miserable conditions at Wrigley Field.
The start of St. Louis’ game at Cincinnati was delayed for more than 2 hours because of the weather. Fans and players wore ski masks at Citi Field, and there was free hot chocolate at the concession stands at Fenway Park.
It was 31 degrees in Kansas City with an 18 mph wind, making it feel like 20 degrees. A night earlier, the Angels and Royals finished up in snow.
