The Minnesota Twins' game against the Toronto Blue Jays has been postponed because of expected wintry weather.

The Twins announced the postponement with rain and snow in the forecast for Wednesday night.

It will be made up Thursday as the second game of a day-night doubleheader.

Toronto's R.A. Dickey and Minnesota's Mike Pelfrey were the scheduled starting pitchers and will probably will be moved back a day.

Toronto (8-6) has dominated the series lately in both teams' parks, winning 21 of 26 overall and 18 of 22 in Minnesota after Tuesday's 9-3 victory. The Twins last won a home series with the Blue Jays when they took two of three May 25-27, 2007.

Melky Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 14 games, a franchise record to begin a season, and Brett Lawrie hit a grand slam in the ninth to highlight Tuesday's win.

Dickey, who sports a 1-2 record and 5.30 earned-run average this season, has been roughed up in two of his three starts, including Thursday's 6-4 loss to Houston in which he allowed five runs on six hits in seven innings.
