Marlins-Twins to play day-night doubleheader

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Twins have pre-emptively postponed their game against the Miami Marlins, due to approaching inclement weather.

The Twins announced almost seven hours before the scheduled start time on Monday that they'll play the Marlins instead on Tuesday night as the second half of a split doubleheader. The two teams already were slated to play on Tuesday afternoon. This is only a two-game series.

Four of Minnesota's last eight schedule games have been wiped out before they began because of weather problems, including three at home. That matched their previous season high for postponements at Target Field, in 2011.

Monday's game was called while the temperature was 45 degrees, before any rain fell. But the forecast was calling for a wet night, turning to heavy snow.
