Monday’s scheduled Game 3 of the American League Championship Series between the Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles has been postponed because of rain in Kansas City. The rain is expected to continue through the night.
The game has been rescheduled for Thursday, which was originally scheduled to be a travel day.
Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s games will be played at scheduled, and Thursday’s game will not be needed if the Royals win Tuesday and Wednesday to complete a four-game sweep of the series.
The announcement that Monday’s game was postponed came more than three hours before the game was scheduled to begin.
The forecast for the rest of the week in Kansas City is for clear skies.
The Royals lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.
