Guardians-Padres Reunion Series starting today, one day late

Morning news and notes for Wednesday, May 4, 2022

MLB: Spring Training-San Diego Padres at Cleveland Indians
I’m thinking it may not have been rain that postponed this March 12, 2020 game between Cleveland and San Diego?
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland and San Diego were postponed yesterday. So I don’t need to tell you which squad was supposed to be the home team. A doubleheader will be attempted today.

No word on whether Mike Clevinger and Zach Plesac attempted anything irresponsible while tornadoes were possible in the surrounding area.
