KC to play five-game series vs. Tigers in August
By Dick Kaegel / MLB.com
ANAHEIM -- Now this will be a very interesting series if the Royals and Tigers are still battling for the American League Central lead in August.
There will be a five-game series at Detroit because a rainout on April 23 has been rescheduled as part of a split doubleheader on Aug. 16 at Comerica Park.
The postponed game has been booked for 12:08 p.m. CT on that Friday, to be followed by the regularly scheduled game at 6:08 p.m.
The series also includes games on Thursday night, Aug. 15; Saturday night, Aug. 17; and Sunday afternoon, Aug. 18.
Not yet rescheduled is the May 2 game against Tampa Bay that was stopped by rain and then snow in the fourth inning. Three other postponed games already have been played.
Royals to face Halos on Faith & Family Day
ANAHEIM -- The Angels will be the Royals' opponent at the annual Faith & Family Day on Saturday, May 25, at Kauffman Stadium.
Following the 1:10 p.m. CT game, there will be appearances by Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar and teammates, plus Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton, who credits his Christian faith with helping him overcome substance abuse. The Christian rock and modern worship group Crowder will perform in a 45-minute concert.
The first 10,000 fans that day will receive the first installment of the Hot Dog Derby bobblehead series, Ketchup.
