KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Kansas City Royals' surprising season was interrupted by bad weather again. It doesn't seem to bother them.
The Royals' game against the Minnesota Twins was rained out Wednesday night and will be made up June 16, a scheduled off day for both teams.
With several hours of heavy rain in the forecast, the game never began and was called after a nine-minute delay.
It was the third time this season the Royals have had a game postponed because of inclement weather.
Kansas City is off to the best start in team history at 15-3, but manager Tony Pena was not concerned that the unexpected day off will affect his team's momentum.
"My boys need a break," he said. "Let them go home and rest, spend time with their families. We'll be back tomorrow, and we'll be fine."
Kansas City third baseman Joe Randa chose to look at the bright side, too.
"It's always a good time for a rainout," he said. "I've never had a rainout and been disappointed. Obviously, when your team is playing well, it's good to be on the field playing. But a rainout can be good for a ballclub when guys are a little hurt. It gives them another day to get healthy. It can help a rotation mix and match and get better matchups. You get time to go home and spend it with your family."
The Royals' home game against Cleveland was rained out April 6.
