Frigid weather on deck as Angels visit Minnesota


MINNEAPOLIS -- It's been four years since the Twins played under the roof of the Metrodome. Their home now is Target Field, a gorgeous, state-of-the-art ballpark, but also one with no roof, which makes baseball in April difficult and may threaten the three-game series the Angels are currently in town for.

The frigid weather, which caused a postponement of Sunday's game between the Twins and Mets, is expected to hold up on Monday -- even though game-time temperatures are slated for 38 degrees, with winds at 16 mph -- and Tuesday night's game is expected to also go on uninterrupted. But leading up to the series opener, weather reports showed a 60 percent chance of snow/rain for the night of Wednesday's series finale.

Both teams are off on Thursday, but there's a 60-percent chance of sleet then, too. And because year-long Interleague Play has teams making only one trip to cities not in their division, this is the only time the Angels will be in town this season.

In short, it could get interesting very soon.

"We're going to get through one pitch, one inning at a time, and see where everything leads," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Obviously there's some snow in the forecast."
