The Toronto Blue Jays are scheduled to play a doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals at the Rogers Centre with the first game beginning at 3:07 p.m. and the second game beginning at 7:07 p.m. Gates one through six are now closed at the stadium. The Toronto Blue Jays haven't had to cancel a game since 2001 thanks to the retractable roof at the Rogers Centre.

The Royals were grateful just to have made it into Toronto, let alone consider starting their series against the Blue Jays.

The Major League Baseball season is only 19 days old, but there have already been 24 postponed game thanks to a freakish blast of wintry weather across the midwest and northeast. Tuesday will mark the first doubleheader played at Rogers Centre since 1989. 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.

Solarte's third homer of the season was a two-run shot off Erik Skoglund (0-2) into the second deck in the first inning. He gave up three runs on eight hits in five innings, walking one and striking out five.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said more than 60% of the Commonwealth's 2.4 billion people were under the age of 30. The event will include members from charities and organizations to aid gender equality and girls education.

There's been an incredible wave of postponements thanks to weather across Major League Baseball this year, with 22 through Sunday (the second-most MLB has had through April since 2000, with the month only half-over), and so the San Diego Padres chose to show off their good weather Sunday and declare that their game would be on.

Notes: The Blue Jays will send J.A. Happ (2-1, 3.94 ERA) to the mound in Wednesday's series finale while the Royals will counter with Ian Kennedy (1-1, 1.00).

The Blue Jays said crews were working to fix a hole in the roof of the Rogers Centre and fans would be treated to a "traditional doubleheader" Tuesday afternoon. Solarte is slashing.286/.423/.500 with 12 hits, four RBIs and seven runs scored, while Smoak's line is.269/.381/.462 with 14 hits, 10 RBIs and 11 runs. Take the Blue Jays on the runline.

Trailing 3-0, Toronto finally got on the board when Kansas City turned to its bullpen in the seventh.
