The Royals-Cardinals game scheduled for Sunday was postponed after a 2 hour, 45 minute delay, and no make-up date has been set yet and the teams have just two common off-days the rest of the season–July 23 and Aug. 3. If you had tickets, hold onto them, you should use those for whatever date is announced.
The July date will most likely be the date the teams look at, because the Cardinals will be coming back from Chicago and open a series at home. The Royals will already be at home in the middle of a homestand. They could conclude their series with Pittsburgh, fly to St. Louis, then return for a weekend series with Houston starting that Friday.
The August date would require the Royals to fly from Toronto to St. Louis, then back to the eastern time zone to Detroit.
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that he will push each of his starting pitchers back a day, meaning that John Lackey will now open a two-game home series against the Twins on Monday. He’ll be followed, in order, by Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez, Jaime Garcia and Tyler Lyons over the next week.
Royals manager Ned Yost said Chris Young, Sunday’s scheduled starter, will start on Tuesday in Milwaukee when right-hander Joe Blanton was supposed to start in place of the injured Jason Vargas. Right-hander Edinson Volquez will keep his start on Monday at Miller Park.
