Virus-postponed Twins-Angels games get May 20 doubleheader

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – The Minnesota Twins will make up a pair of virus-prompted postponements against the Los Angeles Angels as a doubleheader on May 20, which was originally an off day for both teams.

Major League Baseball announced on Tuesday the rescheduling of games from April 17 and 18. The Twins lost 10-3 to the Angels on April 16 at Angel Stadium before being forced to pause when their positive tests reached four. In all, five Minnesota players went on the COVID-19 injured list.

The Twins also had their April 19 game at Oakland postponed and made it up as a doubleheader against the Athletics.

Finding a practical way to make up the games was difficult, with only one scheduled trip to Southern California for the Twins. They’ll now have 17 games in 16 days, with a flight from Minnesota to Anaheim for the traditional doubleheader that starts in the afternoon on May 20. They’ll travel to Cleveland after that for a three-game series beginning on May 21.

The doubleheader is in the middle of an eight-game homestand for the Angels.
