MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins and Tigers game scheduled for Sunday has been postponed, according to Twins President Dave St. Peter.
Mother Nature gets us again today. Game will be postponed. Makeup date TBD.— Dave St. Peter (@TwinsPrez) April 27, 2014
Kyle Gibson had been scheduled to oppose Detroit's Justin Verlander.
Now, Gibson is scheduled to pitch Tuesday against the Dodgers after Monday's off day.
No @twins game today. Will be made up later this summer. Starters pushed back a day. Gibson goes Tuesday vs. Dodgers— Dustin Morse (@Twins_morsecode) April 27, 2014
Since the Tigers are a division opponent, making up the game will not be as difficult as it would for a team like the Blue Jays.
The Tigers will visit Target Field twice more this year: Friday-Sunday, Aug. 22-24; and Monday-Wednesday, Sept. 15-17.
Today's 1:10 game vs. Detroit has been postponed due to rain. Make up date is currently to be determined. pic.twitter.com/kHGIW0EzlA— Minnesota Twins (@Twins) April 27, 2014
