The evening game between the Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals was postponed about 90 minutes before the scheduled first pitch at 7:07 p.m. ET.

"We saw it happen", Miller said.

The repairs to the Rogers Centre roof began right away as crews hastily went to work on fixing the panels.

Most of the outfield was cordoned off, and tarpaulins and buckets on both the infield and outfield were being used to catch leaks and drips. "It's mostly location", manager Ned Yost said. Tarps were placed in right field as well as near shortstop and the shallow infield. We took as much time as we could to assess the information ... the weather.

Toronto police said experts have completed an assessment of the tower and no longer feel there is a safety concern.

Reliever Blaine Boyer reportedly grabbed the wheel to help the driver bring the bus to a stop after being sprayed with flying glass.

The weather has been a major problem for the Royals in recent days. The offense has been frightful and it was expected to be down this year after they lost both Lorenzo Cain and Eric Hosmer, but what wasn't expected was losing Salvador Perez before the season started and losing Alex Gordon last week.
