Tuesday's matchup between the Minnesota Twins and host Chicago White Sox was postponed due to ongoing rain in the area.

Instead, the teams will play a straight doubleheader on Wednesday beginning at 1:10 p.m. local time, which is when their series finale was originally scheduled. Game 2 will begin 30-45 minutes after the end of Game 1.

Erick Fedde (6-3, 3.13 ERA) was originally slated to start on Tuesday for Chicago against Minnesota's Bailey Ober (8-4, 4.12) in a battle of right-handers. Those pitchers will take the ball for Game 1 of the twin bill, with the White Sox sending righty Drew Thorpe (3-1, 3.71) to the mound for Game 2 to oppose Twins righty Pablo Lopez (8-7, 5.18).

The Twins have won three straight games, including 8-6 in 11 innings in Monday's series opener against Chicago. The White Sox, owners of the worst record in baseball at 26-67, have dropped three in a row.
