|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals game has been postponed by rain and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Saturday beginning at 7:10 p.m. EDT.
The White Sox and Royals played for 9 minutes Friday night before heavy storms hit Kauffman Stadium. Sean O'Sullivan retired the White Sox in order in the first.
After Gregor Blanco walked to lead off the bottom of the inning, the count was 1-1 with Jason Kendall at the plate when the tarp was placed on the field.
After waiting 91 minutes with no let up in the rain, umpire crew chief Joe West postponed the game.
