A Category 4 hurricane approaching Southern California has caused MLB to reschedule three different games that were to take place Sunday.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, previously scheduled to face the Miami Marlins, will instead play a split doubleheader at noon PT and 6:10 p.m. on Saturday. The Los Angeles Angels’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays and the San Diego Padres’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks will receive the same treatment, with games at 1:07 p.m. and 6:07 p.m. in Anaheim and 12:10 p.m. and 5:40 p.m. in San Diego.

All ticket-holders for Sunday’s games will receive access for the early games Saturday.

All three teams in Southern California playing home series simultaneously is a rarity in MLB scheduling, and a stroke of bad luck for the league as Hurricane Hilary bears down on the region. Per the National Hurricane Center, Hilary is expected to weaken into a tropical storm by the time it reaches the U.S., but it is still expected to bring enormous amounts of rain and wind.

MLB might have some more rescheduling to do in the future as well, as the Angels and Padres both have home series starting on Monday, when their cities could still be feeling the effects of the storm.
