Twins-Angels matches postponed by virus get double title on May 20
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – The Minnesota Twins will make a pair of virus-induced deferrals against the Los Angeles Angels as a double header on May 20, which was originally a day off for both teams.
Major League Baseball announced Tuesday the postponement of the games of April 17 and 18. The Twins lost 10-3 to the Angels on April 16 at Angel Stadium before being forced to take a break when their total of positive tests reached four. In all, five Minnesota players have been on the COVID-19 injury list.
The Twins also postponed their April 19 game in Oakland and did so in doubles against the Athletics the next day.
With just one trip planned to Southern California for the Twins, it was difficult to find a convenient way to catch up on games. They will now have 17 games in 16 days, with a flight from Minnesota to Anaheim for the traditional double schedule that kicks off on the afternoon of May 20. They will then travel to Cleveland for a three-game series starting May 21.
The leading double is in the middle of an eight-game homestand for the Angels.
