MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – 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 time.

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.
