Tuesday night's game against the White Sox was postponed because of rain, even though there was very little precipitation in the forecast for 7 p.m. and afterward.
But for whatever reason, Indians officials prefer to play a doubleheader today beginning at 4:05 p.m. It will require only one admission, and fans who held tickets for tonight's scheduled game will see both contests on the same ticket.
Fans who hold tickets for Tuesday night's game can exchange for them today's twinbill or an any April and May game in 2010, excluding Opening Day.
Pitching matchups for today: Fausto Carmona vs. Carlos Torres in the opener; Justin Masterson vs. Mark Buehrle in the second game.
LAST OUTING -- Because Masterson's start was postponed from Tuesday night to tonight, he will not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Red Sox in Boston.
""We'll work it out,'' manager Eric Wedge said. ""Toma (Ohka) is the logical choice to go Sunday, depending on if we have to use him before then.''
BRANTLEY TO RETURN -- Michael Brantley's sore ankle has improve to the point where he can return to the lineup.
He was in Tuesday night's batting order, and Wedge plans to use him today in at least one of the two games.
