Reds and Royals Postponed Tonight Will Play Two Tomorrow
After a Cincinnati Reds player tested positive for COVID-19 the Pirates and Reds cancelled their Saturday and Sunday games. The Reds were set to play a two game set at Kauffman Stadium tonight. That game has been postponed and will be played as part of a double header to allow additional testing in the Reds' organization. The Statement from Major League Baseball and the Kansas City Royals is below:
Out of an abundance of caution and to allow for additional testing within the Cincinnati Reds’ organization, Major League Baseball announced today that tonight’s game between the Reds and the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium has been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader tomorrow beginning at 4:05PM CDT. Major League Baseball will continue to provide updates as necessary.
As we've experienced with the Cardinals coronavirus outbreak, the Reds playing the Royals tomorrow is hardly guaranteed.
