Royals, Twins set for doubleheader after rainout

After having Friday night's series opener postponed due to inclement weather that included tornado warnings, the Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins will play a straight doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Right-hander Ian Kennedy (0-1, 7.88 ERA) will start the first of the two seven-inning games for the Royals and will be opposed by right-hander Jake Odorizzi (0-0, 6.00). Following a 30-minute break, left-hander Danny Duffy (0-2, 5.12) will square off with Minnesota right-hander Jose Berrios (1-2, 5.31).

Kennedy, who went 3-2 with 30 saves and a 3.41 ERA in 2019, will be making his first start since 2018, serving in an opener's role. He will be followed by the original planned starter, right-hander Jakob Junis (0-0, 4.00).
