MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins postponed their series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday because of inclement weather, the second straight game they had washed out at Target Field. Luca Zidane Jersey . The Twins announced the decision in the early afternoon, more than six hours before the scheduled first pitch, and slotted the makeup for Thursday as part of a day-night doubleheader. The Twins had a day off on Monday, meaning they havent played since Saturday afternoon. Coaches and players came to the ballpark to work out a little bit and try to stay limber, while a cold, wet system stayed stuck over Minnesota with a forecast to linger well into the week. Temperatures have been in the high 30s and low 40s, with steady rain falling since Saturday night and a bit of snow mixed in at times, too. "They feel like they havent been out there in a year, and its only been a few days," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said, adding: "Mother Natures winning right now." The predicted high for Wednesday was 45 degrees, with the chance of precipitation pegged at 70 per cent, so that game could be in trouble, too. "Mother Nature is what Mother Nature is. Thats one of those many aspects of life and baseball that you cant do anything about," said right-hander Kyle Gibson, who was supposed to start on Sunday, and on Tuesday, and will now take the mound on Wednesday opposite Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke. Maybe. "You hope that we can step right back into it and get into a flow," Gardenhire said. Well, if the weather wont relent, theres always an NHL playoff game to watch. The Wild will play at Colorado in Game 7 of their first-round series on Wednesday night. "Im going to challenge something early and get thrown out of the game and come in here and watch hockey," Gardenhire joked in his office. The Dodgers, who were to begin a nine-game road trip, werent available for comment. They were scheduled to start Dan Haren on Wednesday and Josh Beckett on Thursday, but their rotation for the reshuffled series was yet to be determined. The Twins picked Mike Pelfrey for the original game on Thursday afternoon, but Gardenhire said they hadnt determined the starter for the makeup game on Thursday night. Ricky Nolascos turn would be next, but teams are allowed to call up a 26th player for doubleheaders. So a Triple-A pitcher could make a spot start if either or both teams wanted to avoid using Greinke and/or Gibson on short rest this Sunday. This was the 11th postponed game for the Twins in five seasons at Target Field, six of which have been over the past two Aprils. Their scheduled series finale on Sunday against the Tigers was pushed to either August or September when the Tigers make their return trips. Rescheduling the Dodgers would be far more difficult, because this is their only planned visit. The next common day off for the teams is May 19, when the Dodgers would have to make a one-day stop between series in Arizona and New York. There are only two other mutual openings on the 2014 schedule outside of the All-Star break, but those would require the Dodgers (July 28) and Twins (August 25) to play 24 straight days. The collective bargaining agreement prohibits teams from being scheduled to play more than 20 straight days. If the Dodgers are forced to make a return trip, theyll probably have Clayton Kershaw with them. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, who has been on the disabled list for the first time in his career with a back muscle injury since winning the teams season opener, will make his second minor league rehabilitation start on Wednesday for Double-A Chattanooga, the Dodgers announced on Monday. Kershaw said over the weekend he felt ready to return, but the team preferred to be cautious with their $215 million ace. Kershaw pitched five innings on Saturday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga. James Rodriguez Jersey . Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., were second with 77.01 points, just behind Olympic bronze medallists Aliona Savchenko and Robin Szolkowy of Germany. The four-time world champs lead at 79.

Saltalamacchia drove in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, Henderson Alvarez won for the first time in three starts and the Miami Marlins beat the Braves 3-2 on Thursday night.TSN.ca presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season. Rankings were weighted evenly between separate lists made by TSN Radio host and soccer analyst Gareth Wheeler as well as TSN.cas soccer editors. *Please note the ranking changes also take into account Matchday 13 that was played November 30th and December 1st, those results are in brackets for each team. 1. Arsenal (Last Week -1) Top of the table Arsenal were solid once again in a professional 2-0 victory over Hull City. Nicklas Bendtner scored his first goal for the Gunners since 2011 in the second minute of the game setting a tone that would not change throughout the contest. Mesut Ozil scored just after halftime and any fight that might have been in Hull was quickly washed away. (3-0W vs. Cardiff) 2. Manchester City (LW-4) Looking to respond to their poor away form to start the season, City picked up a 3-2 victory away to West Brom that was not as close as the score would suggest. They built a three goal lead through Sergio Aguero and a brace from Yaya Toure before conceding twice in the final five minutes plus stoppage time to leave with a one goal victory. (3-0W vs. Swansea) 3. Chelsea (LW-2) Eden Hazard was the story for Chelsea in a wild 4-3 victory over Sunderland. He twice gave his team the lead with strikes in the 36th and 62nd minute of the contest. Frank Lampard and a Sunderland own goal provided the rest of the margin for Chelsea who held fast at the end to capture a very entertaining victory. (3-1W vs. Southampton) 4. Liverpool (LW-3) The story was Luis Suarez and the question was how many could he score against Norwich City. The answer was four goals, all of the highlight reel variety, and add an assist in a 5-1 victory. Suarez has an incredible 11 goals in five games against Norwich, though there doesnt seem to be a side that he cant dominate against right now anywhere in the League. (3-1L vs. Hull City) 5. Everton (LW-7) Bryan Oviedos 85th minute marker helped Everton do something they hadnt done since 1992, pick up a victory at Old Trafford. It looked like it was going to be a solid point for the Toffees before the defender found himself alone in the box and fired home the winner. Romelu Lukaku was strong for Everton in the victory. (4-0W vs. Stoke) 6. Tottenham (LW-9) A 73rd minute marker from Vlad Chiriches and a Lewis Holtby goal nine minute later brought Spurs back for a 2-1 victory over Fulham. The victory was the first in four League games for Tottenham who now find themselves sixth just out of the European places. They were deserved winners of this contest. (2-2D vs. Manchester United) 7. Manchester United (LW-5) Five minutes from picking up a point, United conceded the winner and fell 1-0 at the hands of Everton. Wayne Rooney struck the post and missed another great chance before halftime and two more chances went by the boards in the second half of the game. The Champions now find themselves 12 points off the top of the table. (2-2D vs. Tottenham) 8. Southampton (LW-6) The Saints fell 3-2 to Aston Villa in a game they dominated but in the end found themselves on the losing side. Before the deciding marker they found themselves behind in the game twice and both times were able to equalize including Pablo Daniel Osvaldo just five minutes after they gave up the second goal. 11 minutes after that though, they were trailing once again and this time for good. (3-1L vs. Chelsea) 9. Newcastle United (LW-8) A four match winning streak came to a crashing end at the Liberty Stadium as Newcastle fell on the road to Swansea 3-0. Swansea dominated the contest and though Newcastle had a few claims for penalties waved away, they didnt produce much else on the day. (2-1W vs. West Brom) 10. Swansea City (LW-10) It was a rather easy night for The Swans as they rolled to a 3-0 victory over Newcastle. Iker Casillas Jersey. Goals from Jonjo Shelvey and Nathan Dyer as well as a Mathieu Debuchy own goal were the difference in the contest. It wasnt all good for Swansea who added striker Alvaro Vazquez to their growing list of injured offensive players. (3-0L vs. Manchester City) 11. Aston Villa (LW-12) Three goals against the run of play led Aston Villa to a 3-2 victory over Southampton in a game the Saints dominated. Gabriel Agbonlahor, Libor Kozak and Fabian Delph were all on target for Villa, with Delphs winner coming in the 80th minute to both seal and steal the three points. (0-0D vs. Sunderland) 12. Hull City (LW-14) Hull was not able to recover from giving up a goal in the second minute of the game as they fell 2-0 at the hands of Arsenal. There really werent many high points for hull in this loss as they hand trouble working their way into the game and as a result were beaten in almost every aspect of the action. (3-1W vs. Liverpool) 13. West Bromwich Albion (LW-11) A late arriving crowd and an even later comeback were the story for the Baggies as they fell 3-2 at the hands of Manchester City. Kickoff was delayed 15 minutes at The Hawthorns due to a traffic jam, while Victor Anichebes goal, late in stoppage time, was only able to make the final score-line a little closer. (2-1L vs. Newcastle) 14. Cardiff City (LW-13) Though they looked good at times in the game, Cardiff was forced to settle for a scoreless draw against Stoke in the only game on Match day 14 that didnt feature a goal. Declan John almost stole the game for his side but wasnt able to find the net for a late winner. (3-0L vs. Arsenal) 15. Stoke City (LW-15) On a day with many goals, Stoke and Cardiff played to a scoreless draw. For Stoke it was a much better defensive performance following their four goal loss to Everton in their last League game. Keeper Asmir Begovic was solid when called upon to help his team leave with a point. (4-0L vs. Everton) 16. Norwich City (LW-16) The Canaries were helpless against Luis Suarez as he tore them apart for four goals in a 5-1 loss to Liverpool. Bradley Johnson scored in the 83rd minute for Norwich, but Suarez sent Raheem Sterling in for a fifth marker to restore the four goal lead he built. It was total domination at the hands of a brilliant player. (1-0W vs. Crystal Palace) 17. West Ham United (LW-17) A headed goal conceded just before halftime was the difference in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace. The Hammers pressed hard at the end of the game and enjoyed more of the possession throughout the contest but were not able to produce an equalizing marker. (3-0W vs. Fulham) 18. Sunderland (LW-20) The Black Cats were on the wrong end of a seven goal thriller as they well 4-3 to Chelsea. Phillip Bardsley was all over the map for Sunderland as in a two minute span he scored a goal at both ends. His Own goal proved to be the winning marker for Chelsea, while his 86th minute strike gave his team a chance to push for an equalizer that never came for Sunderland. (0-0D vs. Aston Villa) 19. Crystal Palace (LW-19) A 42nd minute marker from Marouane Chamakh was the difference as Palace scored a 1-0 victory over West Ham. This was an important victory as Crystal Palace tries to start a bid for survival in the Premier League and a first at home under new manager Tony Pulis. (1-0L vs. Norwich) 20. Fulham (LW-18) The Martin Jol era might have ended earlier in the week but Fulham are still in poor form as they fell 2-1 to Tottenham. Ashkan Dejagah gave the home side the lead in the second half before Spurs stormed back with two goals in a nine minute span to lay claim to the victory.
