MINNEAPOLIS -- The first rain delay in Target Field history yielded its first suspended game, too.

Tonight's game between the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees will pick up at 4:05 p.m. Wednesday, with no score entering the top of the sixth inning. The regularly scheduled game will start at 6:10 p.m. or a half-hour after the first game concludes.

Because the game went five innings, it's considered an official game, and only fans with tickets to Wednesday's game will be allowed in for the end of the suspended game.

The delay was 1 hour, 24 minutes, before the game was called.

UPDATE, 10:21 p.m.: Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said left-hander Brian Duensing will get the "start" when the suspended game resumes in the sixth inning.

"I'm going to treat it like the first," said Duensing, who made nine starts for the Twins last season.

"I don't know if that's the right way to go about it, but I don't want to put any extra pressure on myself for it being late in the game. Go out there and do what I can and try to get a couple innings, two or three."
