CLEVELAND — Editor's note: the video in the story above is from a previous story.

Spring snow in Northeast Ohio has brought a premature end to this week's two-game series between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox as Wednesday night's game between the two clubs has been postponed due to weather.

As a result, the contest has been rescheduled as a traditional doubleheader on Monday, May 31, with two 7-inning games beginning at 3:10 p.m. ET.

Any original purchaser of tickets to Wednesday night's game will automatically receive a credit that can be used toward any remaining 2021 home game, beginning with the May 7 homestand. The Friday-Sunday games against the New York Yankees this weekend have already reached their allotted capacities of 30 percent.

Beginning with the May 7 homestand, the Indians will begin to increase their stadium capacity to 40 percent, as allowed by the new COVID-19 guidelines set by Governor Mike DeWine. While there is no official capacity limit for outdoor events, venues still must account for social distancing guidelines with seating pods limited to 10 people per pod.

The White Sox beat the Indians 8-5 on Tuesday night, dropping Cleveland to 8-8 on the season.
