Steady rain fell at Progressive Field in the hours leading up to Monday's game, and with the forecast calling for more showers, the Indians officially postponed the game at 5:13 -- less than hours before the scheduled opening pitch.
The game will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader, with the first game scheduled to begin at 12:05 p.m.
This is the Indians' second postponement in seven days. They were rained out last week in Oakland -- the Athletics' first rainout since 1998 -- and played a day-night doubleheader the next day.
Because the Padres are not scheduled to come back to Cleveland this season, the Indians decided to make up the postponement as soon as possible.
