KANSAS CITY (AP) - The Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals have been postponed by rain, and the game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Saturday.

The postponement Friday night was the first rainout at Kauffman Stadium since 2010.

The Twins will start a pair of rookie right-handers in the doubleheader, scheduled to begin at 3:10 p.m. Cole De Vries (3-5) will pitch the first game against fellow Friday starter Will Smith (4-6), Kansas City's rookie left-hander.

Liam Hendricks (0-7) is set to start in the nightcap against right-hander Luke Hochevar (7-12).
