The game was rescheduled for today as part of a split doubleheader, with the first game going as scheduled at noon and the second game set to start at 6:10 p.m. The forecast for today calls for partly cloudy skies with an expected temperature in the mid-30s.

Toronto knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (1-2, 5.30 ERA) will oppose Minnesota's Kyle Gibson (2-0, 1.59) in the afternoon showdown while the Blue Jays send hard-throwing Dustin McGowan (1-1, 4.00) to the hill in the late game against Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey (0-2, 7.84). The Blue Jays prevailed 9-3 in Tuesday's series opener, its 16th win in the past 20 head-to-head meetings.

Bucks announce sale of team

Milwaukee Bucks longtime owner Herb Kohl confirmed Wednesday that he reached an agreement to sell the NBA franchise to hedge-fund billionaires Wesley Edens and Marc Lasry.

The purchase price is estimated at $550 million, ESPN.com reported.

The announcement came before the Bucks' regular-season finale in the BMO Harris Bradley Center against the Atlanta Hawks. The Bucks will finish this season with the worst record in the NBA.

In January, Forbes valued the Bucks at $405 million, last among the league's 30 franchises.

Kohl, a former U.S. Senator, announced in December that he was searching for additional investors to take the franchise into the future. He made a condition of a sale that the team would remain in Milwaukee.
