Twins Game For Friday Night Postponed; No Make-Up Date Announced

The Twins' return to Target Field is going to have to wait, as Friday night's game between the Twins and the Cleveland Indians has been postponed due to rain in Minneapolis.

This is only the second rainout in the short history of Target Field. The first one occurred back on May 7, 2010 when the Baltimore Orioles were in town.

As of now, no make-up date has been announced for when tonight's game will be played. Since Cleveland is a divisional opponent, there will be plenty of opportunities throughout the season to do so, so there won't necessarily be a double-header on either Saturday or Sunday because of tonight's postponement.

On a happier note, Twins' manager Ron Gardenhire said that first baseman Justin Morneau might be ready to play on Saturday. Morneau is getting over the flu, and he also had to have a shot to relieve some pain in his neck.

If and when a make-up date is announced, we will be sure to let you know what it is.

As it stands now, the next game between the Indians and Twins is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Target Field, with first pitch scheduled for 12:10 PM Central time. No word as to whether or not the pitching match-up will be the one that we were expecting tonight (Fausto Carmona vs Brian Duensing) or the one that's currently scheduled for tomorrow afternoon (Carlos Carrasco vs Francisco Liriano).
