Angels-Indians in Milwaukee

After the Indians-Mariners was snowed out for four games, MLB decided the best solution was to have the Indians host the Angels in Milwaukee.

After snow wiped out Cleveland’s series against Seattle for the fourth day in a row Monday, the Indians moved their next series against the Los Angeles Angels to Milwaukee’s Miller Park.

The teams will play a three-game series beginning Tuesday in the ballpark, which unlike Jacobs Field, has a retractable roof. The opener and Wednesday’s game will be played at 7:05 p.m. ET, with Thursday’s scheduled for 1:05 p.m.

On Sunday, baseball officials considering moving the Angels’ series to Anaheim., Calif., but then decided on the switch to Milwaukee. Indians players packed for the trip at midday.

The biggest hurdle to moving the game to Anaheim was the Angels are scheduled to be in Boston the day after the 3-game series wrsp up versus Cleveland, so Milwaukee was the best location availble with the ability to handle the bad weather.
