The game is scheduled to be made up June 25 at 3:15 p.m. CT, which falls in the middle of an eight-game, three-city road trip for the Royals. That trip will start in Houston, then come back to Kansas City for the Angels makeup game on a Monday, then travel to Milwaukee and Seattle.

The Royals also announced that Sunday's starter, left-hander Eric Skoglund, would be pushed back to Monday, when the Royals open a three-game series in Toronto.

Left-hander Danny Duffy will go on Tuesday, and right-hander Ian Kennedy will pitch Wednesday.
