The Royals-Orioles game scheduled to start at 1:10 p.m. on Thursday will be delayed.

A shower rolled through the area around 12:45 p.m., and the tarp which had covered the field most of the morning, was rolled around again.

Royals officials said around 12:30 p.m. that a delay of about an hour was expected.
