The series finale between the Seattle Mariners and the Minnesota Twins has been postponed because of wintry weather.

With snow in the forecast and game-time temperatures expected to hover around freezing, Sunday's game was called off about three hours before it was supposed to begin. Lance Lynn had been scheduled to make his Target Field debut for the Twins, opposite Marco Gonzales of the Mariners.

The game was rescheduled for May 14, a mutual day off for both teams. Complicating the postponement was Seattle's schedule. The Mariners weren't scheduled to return to Minnesota this season.

The two teams played through the coldest outdoor Twins' game in Minnesota history on Saturday when the first pitch was thrown in 27-degree weather. Seattle beat Minnesota 11-4.

The Twins host the Houston Astros on Monday night while the Mariners visit the Kansas City Royals.
