Royals-Red Sox set for split doubleheader Sunday

The Red Sox and Royals will play a day-night doubleheader Sunday at Fenway Park to make up for Friday night's postponement.

Friday's originally scheduled game, postponed "to support efforts of law enforcement officers" as they searched for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, will be played at 7 p.m ET. The clubs will also meet earlier in the day at 1:35 p.m. as scheduled.

The live pregame ceremony can be seen at 1 p.m. on and
