ARLINGTON, Texas — The Angels and Texas Rangers were rained out Saturday, forcing the Angels into an unwanted doubleheader on Sunday.
The first game Sunday will start at noon local time, or 10 a.m. Pacific time. The second game will start at 6 p.m. local time, or 4 p.m. Pacific time. No rain is in the forecast for Sunday.
Although Saturday’s game was scheduled to start at 3 p.m. local time, the game was not called off until 7 p.m. Rain did not cease in the interim, getting heavier as the hours wore on.
The Angels would have been willing to wait all night to avoid a doubleheader. The Angels must now finish the regular season with five games in four days. If they can force a Thursday tiebreaker for the final American League wild-card spot, they probably would have to choose between Zack Greinke and Ervin Santana on three days’ rest.
