Sometimes, baseball is at the mercy of the unpredictable weather.
Things can get complicated as a result of certain weather conditions, such as downpours of rain, tornado warnings, floods, and even hurricanes.
Such is the case this weekend in Southern California, as Hurricane Hilary is set to make landfall on Sunday.
This has thrown a wrench into the plans of the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres, and Los Angeles Angels.
On Twitter, MLB insider Bob Nightengale revealed a massive update pertaining to the games this weekend in Southern California, that the Dodgers, Padres, and Angels have been forced to cancel their games on Sunday and brace for doubleheaders on Saturday.

But with severe weather approaching, the series will end today with a doubleheader.
The first game will start at 12 p.m. Pacific Time, with the nightcap beginning at 6:10.
The Padres are hosting the Arizona Diamondbacks after having taken the first game of the series on Friday.
The first game of the doubleheader will kick off at the same time as the first game with the Dodgers and Marlins.
The nightcap gets underway at 5:40 Pacific Time.
As for the Halos, they’ll open up their doubleheader with Game 1 at 1:07 Pacific Time, with the second game starting at 6:07.
Because of the impending weather, these teams have had to make some big changes to their schedule in order to avoid having to postpone their games.NEXT: Pete Alonso Comments On His Crucial Mistake
