ARLINGTON, Texas — The odds are against the Angels, and now Mother Nature might be too.
The Angels entered play Friday two games out of a playoff spot, with six to play. Their weekend series in Texas could be interrupted by rain, forcing the Angels into what Manager Mike Scioscia called “a worst-case scenario.”
Thundershowers are in the forecast Friday night and steady rain Saturday. A postponement either day could force a doubleheader Sunday, an unsettling proposition for a team with a leaky bullpen.
What concerns the Angels most is that they could lose a starting pitcher to a rain delay. In May, a game was interrupted by rain in the first inning, and the Angels did not bring back starter C.J. Wilson after a two-hour delay.
