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:

Fans holding tickets to tonight’s (April 29) postponed game have two options:
1.) Utilize their tickets for admission into the rescheduled May 1 game at 6:10 p.m.
2.) Exchange their unused tickets for a future Twins regular season game in 2014 (subject to pricing tier (additional details below) and ticket availability). Unused tickets may be exchanged only at the Target Field Ticket Office located on Target Plaza off 7th Street.

Tickets for the postponed game are not subject to refunds.
