BALTIMORE (AP) -The Cleveland Indians will lose a home game and three days off in making up the four-game series against Seattle that was postponed last month by snow.
The games of April 6-8 will be played at Jacobs Field on May 21, June 11 and Aug. 30. The April 9 game will be held in Seattle on Sept. 26 as part of a doubleheader.
In a traditional doubleheader in Seattle, Cleveland will be the host team in the opener.
``We've done a lot of things this year that we haven't done before,'' Indians manager Eric Wedge said Friday before Cleveland faced the Baltimore Orioles.
May 21 and June 11 were to be days off for the Indians, who were also scheduled to have a day off on Aug. 27. To make room for the Aug. 30 game, however, Cleveland moved up its three-game series against the Minnesota Twins by one day, from Aug. 28 to the 27th.
``We are going to lose some off days but we expected that. Now we'll just plan for it,'' Wedge said. ``There's no reason for anybody to grumble about anything. They know we're going to have to make those games up and they're all aware that most of them are going to be on off days. It's just something you roll with.''
Seattle manager Mike Hargrove declined comment because the Mariners were not yet ready to release the information, and he was surprised the Indians had.
The makeups are the result of a winter storm that blanketed the Midwest during the first week of April. Cleveland was supposed to open its home schedule against Seattle on Friday, April 6. After that game was called, the teams hoped to play a day-night doubleheader Saturday, but that was put off by the spring storm.
They then scheduled a doubleheader for Sunday, which also was postponed. Snow left the field unplayable Monday, too, and at that point Cleveland moved its three-game home series against the Los Angeles Angels to Miller Park in Milwaukee.
