The roof is being repaired and a decision on the game will be made around 2:20 p.m. Travis shook it off, though, and finished out the game, before sitting in the second game of the twin-bill. Will be updated. With AP Photos.

Ninety-nine percent of the time, regardless of what the weather's like outside, baseball goes off without a hitch at the Rogers Centre. Tyler Clippard worked a scoreless 10th for his 50th career victory.

Steve Pearce singled up the middle to score Maile and put the Blue Jays ahead. It's so bad for them that they had a game in a dome postponed on Monday because of weather. They are now just 3-10 on the season and 2-3 on the road.

Game 2 will also feature a pair of lefties, with Kansas City's Danny Duffy going against Toronto's J.A. Happ. There were tarps on the infield near shortstop and others down the left-field line. Steve Pearce gave the Jays a two run double and two runs followed by Kevin Pillar with a run and another RBI.

Toronto starter Jaime Garcia (2-0) allowed eight hits, one walk and three runs while striking out five over five innings to earn the win. He plunked Lucas Duda to force in a run in the first. Tuesday will mark the first doubleheader played at Rogers Centre since 1989. He has reached base in all 13 games he's played, the longest on-base streak to start a season for Toronto since Jose Bautista's 17-game run in 2016. The offense was an issue for them past year and they scored just three total runs in their first two games, but they have averaged 5.75 rpg during their 9-3 streak and that does bode well for them here as the Royals just can't score at the moment.

5-Eligible to be activated from the DL on Friday, designated hitter Kendrys Morales is expected to be ready to return from his strained right hamstring, which will necessitate a corresponding roster move.

Surrounding tourist attractions, including the CN Tower, Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, Steamwhistle Brewery, and The Rec Room, are also closed.

Kansas City was also the opponent for the only previous cancellation at Rogers Centre. On April 12th, 2001, part of the retractable roof was damaged during a routine pre-game test.
