Mookie Betts has been named to the prestigious Baseball America All-Rookie Team for 2014. Betts outdid such 2B stars as Joe Panik (SF), Jonathan Schoop (BAL) and Kolten Wong (STL).

Heavy rains in the Kansas City area forced the change—with little hope of let-up for the remainder of the night. Baltimore's Wei-Yin Chen was to have faced off against Kansas City's Jeremy Guthrie. Game Four has been re-scheduled for Wednesday at 4:07 PM ET, while Game Five (if necessary) will be played on Thursday at 4:07 PM ET. The Royals lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.
