For the fourth time in nine days, bad weather has wiped out a Minnesota Twins game.
The team has announced Monday night's game against the Miami Marlins has been postponed and will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Tuesday.
No snow had fallen when the announcement was made a little before 12:30 p.m. Monday. But forecasts called for conditions to worsen before the evening.
The Twins and Marlins originally were scheduled to wrap up their two-game series at 12:10 p.m. Tuesday. According to the Twins, that game has now been moved to a 1:10 p.m. start, with the makeup game scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
Forecasts called for rain and snow showers to begin around 5 p.m. Monday and continue through Tuesday morning, with highs on Tuesday in the low 40s.
Games previously were wiped out on April 14 against the New York Mets, on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels and on Friday against the White Sox in Chicago.
