Mother Nature wins again.

The Twins-Dodgers game scheduled for tonight has been postponed. The game will be made up on Thursday as part of a Day-Night doubleheader at Target Field. Game one will be the regularly-scheduled matchup at 12:10 p.m., then the makeup game at 6:10 p.m.

Twins players are working out at the park today, anyway.

The starting rotation remains unchanged. Everyone will be pushed back a day. Kyle Gibson starts Wednesday, with Mike Pelfrey and Ricky Nolasco pitching in the doubleheader.

Below are the Twins' instructions on what to do with tickets purchased for tonight's game:
