Rain postpones Royals-White Sox Saturday

April 10th, 2021

CHICAGO -- Saturday's game between the White Sox and Royals was postponed due to inclement weather, with the Chicago weather forecast calling for rain early in the afternoon through Sunday morning.

The contest will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on May 14, with the first game beginning at 1:10 p.m. CT and the second contest as scheduled at 7:10 p.m. Gate and parking lot times will be announced at a later date. Both games will be seven-inning regulation games and both clubs can add an extra player for the doubleheader.

This series with the Royals, now shortened to two games, is scheduled to conclude Sunday afternoon with a 1:10 p.m. first pitch at Guaranteed Rate Field. Rain once again is in the forecast in the Chicago area.

Dylan Cease, who was set to make his second start of the season on Saturday, now will be moved back to Sunday. The White Sox will stay in rotation for their upcoming four-game home set against Cleveland, with Carlos Rodón taking the mound Monday night.

Southpaw Mike Minor will start for the Royals on Sunday with a tough challenge on the docket. The White Sox have won 17 straight games vs. left-handed starting pitchers (3-0 in 2021), the second-longest streak in Major League history behind the 2004-05 Atlanta Braves (18). Their last loss against a lefty starter was on Sept. 28, 2019, vs. Detroit and Tyler Alexander, although Alexander did not figure in the decision.

In 2020, the White Sox were 14-0 vs. left-handed starters.

Fans with game tickets and parking passes to Saturday's postponed game automatically will receive a credit in their White Sox ticket account. Fans can apply the credit value of Saturday's tickets and parking pass to any future regular season White Sox home game once those tickets become available, including either game of the doubleheader on May 14, based on ticket availability.

MLB.TV, NBC Sports Chicago, ESPN Radio AM-1000 and WRTO-AM 1200/Univision Radio will broadcast both games of the May 14 split doubleheader.
