The game between the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins on Monday at 2:10 p.m. ET has been postponed. We don’t yet know what the reason for the postponement is, though the Twins have announced it is not weather related. The Twins released this statement saying the game was moved due to incident at Brooklyn Center in Minneapolis.

The Red Sox scheduled starter was Martin Perez with the Twins set to throw LHP J.A. Happ opposite him. So we’ll see if this is a case in which the Red Sox and Twins play a day-night double-header on Tuesday. The two teams were scheduled to play at the same time tomorrow afternoon.

After starting the season 0-3, the Red Sox entered Monday on a six-game winning streak after sweeping both the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles. The Twins have dropped two straight games after starting the season 5-2 with series wins over the Milwaukee Brewers and Detroit Tigers.
