Royals-Twins postponed by rain



MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The game between the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins was postponed because of rain on Saturday.

The game was scheduled to be made up as part of a split doubleheader on June 30.

The Royals, who won their third straight game Friday night after losing 12 in a row, were scheduled to send Bruce Chen (0-2) against Minnesota’s Jason Marquis (1-0). The Twins have lost six in a row and are in last place in the AL Central.

Before the game, Royals manager Ned Yost said Chen would start Sunday if Saturday’s game was washed out.
