The game scheduled for Saturday night between the Angels and Twins was postponed due to at least one positive COVID-19 test in the Twins organization.

The postponement of the game will allow for continued testing and contact tracing involving members of the Twins organization.
A member of the Twins’ traveling party tested positive for COVID-19 before the game on Friday, but they still played. Following the game, Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli said that a few members of the group will remain away from the stadium and at the hotel for the next few days.
