That was one of the things I was worried (about),” he said. In St. Petersburg, Florida, the Philadelphia Phillies beat Tampa Bay 10-4 inside the domed Tropicana Field.

No Game Today: Wintry weather, plenty of MLB postponements

No Ohtani in Kansas City. No Judge in Detroit. One less off day for a couple more teams this summer.

Six more games were wiped out Sunday, running baseball’s total number of postponements to 21 just 2 1/2 weeks into the season. It’s baseball’s highest number through the end of April since it had 26 in 2007, and there are still a couple weeks to go this month.

The last time six games were wiped out in a single day was Sept. 12, 2008, and that situation was partly caused by Hurricane Ike battering the Gulf Coast. There was more dicey weather in the forecast for Monday, and Boston postponed its annual Patriots’ Day game for the first time since 1984.

“If it was up to me, no one would play north of Atlanta or east of Colorado in the first few weeks, but that’s not going to happen,” Braves reliever Peter Moylan said.

Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani was slated to pitch for the third time before their game against the Royals was called off because of subfreezing temperatures. Aaron Judge and the Yankees were set to play a doubleheader against the Tigers after a rainout on Saturday, but the twinbill was pulled, too, with icicles all over Comerica Park. The last three games of Minnesota’s series at Target Field against the Chicago White Sox were lost to rain, then a blizzard.
