Sports Minute: Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The game between the Minnesota Twins and Kansas City Royals has been rained out. The teams were scheduled to play Saturday night at Kauffman Stadium. The game was postponed several hours before it was supposed to begin. The Royals have lost eight straight.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds has been postponed because of rain. No makeup day has been announced and a doubleheader on Sunday has been ruled out. The teams are scheduled to play at 1:15 p.m. Sunday, but that game is already in question. Forecasts call for rain throughout Sunday around Busch Stadium.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - After adding their quarterback of the future in Pat Mahomes, the Chiefs found a successor to Derrick Johnson at linebacker on day three of the NFL Draft. Kansas City selected Georgia Southern's Ukeme Eligwe in the fifth round to play alongside 3-4 defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon, who was picked during Friday's second round. The Chiefs also added USC safety Leon McQuay in the sixth round.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -After addressing wide receiver and cornerback on the first two days of the NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Nebraska safety Nate Gerry in the fifth round Saturday. In his final season in Lincoln Gerry was third-team All-Big Ten with four interceptions and eight pass breakups.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -The Vikings are unsettled at Sharrif Floyd's defensive tackle spot because of a career-threatening knee injury that has lingered since last year. With their first of two fourth-round selections Saturday, the Vikings took defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson, a former high school wrestler who's primarily a run stopper but had eight sacks last season for Iowa. Floyd, who was a first-round pick in 2013, played in only one game last year.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Keni Harrison cruised to victory in the women's 100-meter hurdles at the Drake Relays. She won in a world-leading 12.56 seconds despite the cold, rain and wind and a field that featured six other runners ranked in the world's top 10.
