Royals postponed in Toronto because of hole in roof

Royals postponed in Toronto because of hole in roof

The Kansas City Royals have had another game postponed. The others were on July 17, 1989, and October 5, 2001.

A doubleheader was necessary after large chunks of ice had fallen off the nearby CN Tower and damaged the dome at Rogers Centre on Monday. About an hour later, the game was postponed.

Monday's Cubs game at Wrigley Field against the Cardinals was postponed making it the Cubs' fourth game that has been postponed this season and third home game that has been rescheduled due to poor field conditions and weather in the last eight days. Tyler Clippard worked a scoreless 10th for his 50th career victory. Toronto is now 9-5 overall and 4-3 at home.

As a unit, Toronto's pitchers have given up 3.8 runs per game overall in 2018.

The rain, wind, snow and cold that has plagued the Major League Baseball through the first two weeks of the season has worn out its welcome for sure.

"I didn't change nothing", said Maile of his recent success. "My concern was, I've got to get the bus off the road".

Compared to his total season slash line of.217/.322/.496, Duda thrived hitting against left-handed pitchers on the road past year, putting up a slash line of.271/.357/.625 across 56 such plate appearances. There were tarps on the infield near shortstop and others down the left-field line. Mike Moustakas is having a solid season so far as he is hitting.327 with three homers and nine RBIs, while Lucas Duda is hitting.282 with two homers and eight RBIs.

The game will now be played on Tuesday afternoon, beginning at 3:07 p.m., as part of a traditional doubleheader.

"No excuses", he said. "It was something we took very seriously right away". The Royals will counter with southpaws Eric Skoglund and Danny Duffy. Alcides Escobar gave Kansas City another RBI while Lucas Duda and Jorge Soler scoring.

On Tuesday, Blue Jays starter Jaime Garcia was set to start Game 1 and fellow left-hander J.A. Happ was tabbed for the nightcap.
