Mets-Twins finale washed out, rescheduled for Aug. 19
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins' scheduled game with the Mets on Sunday at Target Field was postponed due to inclement weather, and will be made up on Aug. 19 at 1:10 p.m. CT.
It marks the first postponed game of the season for the Twins, who have dealt with cold weather in their first five home games.
Right-hander Kevin Correia was scheduled to start against the Mets and will be pushed back to pitch against the Angels on Monday. He will be followed by right-handers Mike Pelfrey and Vance Worley before Thursday's scheduled off-day. The Twins don't need a fifth starter until April 22, against the Marlins. Left-hander Pedro Hernandez, who has a strained left calf, is expected to rejoin the rotation then.
Fans holding tickets to Sunday's postponed game have two options. They can keep their tickets for admission into the rescheduled game on Aug. 19, or utilize the value of their ticket -- the amount paid -- as a voucher towards any future Twins regular season game in 2013. Tickets for the postponed game are not subject to refunds.
Fans who wish to exchange their tickets for another game must bring the tickets to the Target Field box office no later than 48 hours prior to the start of the rescheduled game. Tickets returned any later than 48 hours prior to the start of the rescheduled game will be considered invalid. Tickets may be exchanged only at the Target Field Ticket Office located on Target Plaza off 7th Street.
