Monday's Royals game in doubt due to Toronto ice

It was really loud. "It sounded like fireworks or some sort of explosion".

The Kansas City Royals had their last two Sunday home games at Kauffman Stadium postponed due to frigid temps.

Instead, the game will be made up Tuesday as part of a traditional doubleheader beginning at 3:07 p.m. ET. While without Josh Donaldson right now, I still like the Jays to come through.

Toronto hands the ball to Jaime Garcia against visiting Kansas City for his third start of 2018. And it may mark yet another weather-related hurdle for the Jays, who had games in Cleveland rained out both Saturday and Sunday.

Tonight, there was a weather-related postponement, but not one you see very often.

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.

Biagini was demoted to Triple-A when the big club headed north from Dunedin in order for him to remain stretched out in the event of an injury to the Jays starting five or a hole in the stadium roof.

For the Heat , veteran guard Dwyane Wade led the way with 28 points and seven rebounds, including 21 points in the first half. They won 16 straight to end the regular season and the first game of the playoffs.

Kansas City Royals players throw baseballs in front of tarps protecting the Rogers Centre field from water coming through the roof on Monday. The game was postponed for safety reasons.

Many baseball games have been canceled this season due to weather and poor field conditions - just look at the two Chicago teams.

The Air Canada Centre is still open, but police said it may take longer than normal to get around in the area. The since-deleted tweet, which included a winking emoji, read: "Weather update: Due to our stadium having a roof, today's game will be ..."

Falling ice was wreaking havoc on everything in a five-block radius of the 1,815-foot high CN Tower.

Toronto's CN Tower has closed amid reports of falling ice with thousands of sports fans descending upon the city for Toronto Leafs and Blue Jays games scheduled for Monday evening.

A flying chunk of ice broke the windshield of a team bus on the way to the hotel. Reliever Blaine Boyer grabbed the wheel and helped bring the bus to a stop.
