Twins rained out in KC; doubleheader Saturday

Due to the steady rain that’s lingered over Kansas City all day, the Twins’ Friday  night game against the Royals has been cancelled.

A doubleheader has been scheduled for tomorrow, with the first game at 3:10 p.m. The Twins’ Cole De Vries was scheduled to pitch against the Royals’ Will Smith on Friday, and the Star-Tribune is reporting that it is still unknown how the rainout will affect tomorrow’s pitching matchups.

The Twins enter the road trip with a 53-78 record, worst in the AL Central. The Royals, at 59-71, will finish August with the division’s best record, 17-11, now that Friday’s contest has been rescheduled. Against the Twins this year, the Royals are 4-8, and the two teams will face each other six more times this season.
