The White Sox’ Wednesday night game against the Indians in Cleveland has been postponed due to field conditions and weather. The game will be rescheduled as a straight doubleheader May 31, starting at 3:05 p.m.
The city of Cleveland woke up to a light snow covering Wednesday after rain, which began falling shortly after the the Sox’ 8-5 victory over the Indians Tuesday night, turned to snow. The forecast for Wednesday evening was clear but windy with a high of 40 degrees.
The Sox were packing up and heading for Chicago, where they will have an off day Thursday before opening a nine-game homestand with a game against the Rangers on Friday.
The Sox had not announced a starter for Wednesday and were considering a bullpen day to take the place of right-hander Lance Lynn, who is on the injured list. So the timing of the postponement wasn’t the worst development for them.
The Sox improved to 9-9 Tuesday behind five innings of two-run ball (one earned) from Carlos Rodon and home runs from Jose Abreu (two), Tim Anderson and Yasmani Grandal.
Both of the games in the May 31 doubleheader will be seven innings.
