We would also not have an off-day from July 19 to August 18 if that was the makeup date.
The Twins are also back in Chicago from September 16-18, which comes at the end of another 20-straight stretch for the Sox and is in the middle of a 20-straight stretch for the Twins to end the season.
This is the third postponement for the Twins already this year, who have to makeup home games with the Mets and the Angels.
