Wednesday's night severe weather in the Twin Cities forced the Twins and Astros off the field after three innings. Now that game will be made up as part of a shortened doubleheader on Thursday.

With the Twins down 5-1 after three innings the game went into a delay. Even after the severe weather wound down, the rain, thunder and lightening persisted forcing the game to be postponed.

Thursday's 12:10pm first pitch will now take place in the 4th inning of the postponed game. That game will be followed 30 minutes later by the regular scheduled finale of the series against the Astros.

Both games can be heard in their entirety on News Talk 830 WCCO and the Audacy App (restrictions apply) starting with the pregame show at 11:30 a.m.
