Tuesday’s series opener between the Kansas City Royals and Brewers at American Family Field in Milwaukee has been changed to avoid conflict with the NBA Finals, Major League Baseball announced on Sunday.

Originally scheduled for a first pitch at 7:10 p.m. CT, the time of play has been changed to 3:10 p.m. CT. The change was made to host Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night in Milwaukee.

Bally Sports Kansas City will still broadcast Tuesday’s Royals-Brewers game, and KCSP 610 AM will broadcast the game on the radio.

The Royals have a day off Monday before they start a two-game set at Milwaukee. Left-hander Mike Minor (6-8, 5.67) will start Tuesday’s game, while right hander Brad Keller (6-9, 5.97) will start on Wednesday.
