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 good thing is it didn't rain out this parade, even though it tried to. An occasional downpour couldn't wreck this. You love baseball. You want drama. You love how it heats up in the postseason, how every pitch, every twitch, is magnified by 10. Well, the Angels and Yankees gave baseball fans a boatload of that Saturday at the cradle of the sport, Yankee Stadium. OK, at the Yankee Stadium across the street from the cradle, which will soon be a parking lot. So much was at stake in this, Game 2 of the American League Championship Series.

A stubborn marine layer brought light drizzle to Southern California's coast and valleys Tuesday, a precursor to an incoming cold front that likely will dump rain on the region this week. The system will bring a 20% chance of light rain to Los Angeles around 8 p.m. Tuesday, said National Weather Service meteorologist Kathy Hoxsie. The chance of rain will increase to about 50% by Wednesday. The rain is expected to linger into Thursday and clear up by Friday, when Hoxsie said temperatures are expected to warm from the 60s into the 70s. “We welcome the rain, whatever we can get, but it's nothing on the order of what we had last month,” she said.

Rain was forecast for Fontana on Sunday, but there was no immediate scheduling change by NASCAR for its Sprint Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway. The Auto Club 400 was set to begin at noon PDT but weather forecasts called for various amounts of rain throughout Sunday. "We won't make a decision until [Sunday] morning" on whether to delay the race or otherwise alter its starting time, NASCAR spokeswoman Kristi King said Saturday as the Cup drivers held the first of two scheduled practice sessions.

 Rain is forecast for Thursday and Friday, which means the Southern Section and City Section semifinals could have wet field conditions. In the Southern Section Pac-5, Mission Hills Alemany is scheduled to host St. John Bosco on its grass field. A final decision is expected on Monday. Alemany will likely have to bring in extra bleachers to be given clearance to keep the game at Alemany. Mater Dei will play Long Beach Poly at Veterans Stadium, which has an all-weather field. In the City Section Division I, Crenshaw is hosting Venice and has an all-weather field.

NEW YORK -- The U.S. Open men's semifinal between sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych and third-seeded Andy Murray that was supposed to begin at 8 a.m. Pacific time has been delayed by rain and Saturday's forecast is not looking positive for tennis for at least another hour. There is flooding in the area and the best hope for the USTA is that the Murray-Berdych match and the next men's semifinal between second-seeded and defending champion Novak Djokovic and fourth-seeded David Ferrerr can get played.

Magellanic penguin chicks in Argentina have a new killer to fear -- death by climate change. The downy chicks were already vulnerable to predation and starvation in the first few weeks of their lives, but now they are threatened by increasing rainstorms caused by changing weather patterns. "Climate change is a new mortality factor," said Dee Boersma, a conservation biologist at the University of Washington. "It didn't use to kill these penguins and now it does. " Boersma and her team have been studying penguins  for 28 years at Punta Tombo on the Atlantic side of Argentina -- home of the largest Magellanic penguin colony in the world.

This morning, while taking the dog for a walk, I felt a brief flurry of raindrops, like goose bumps, rise along my arm. We are due for a storm, of course -  two of them, one this evening and another beginning tomorrow night - and we all know how badly California needs the water, in the era of the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge . And yet, for me, the drought is just one piece of this equation - and only one reason I am happy for the rain....

Am I dreaming? I have always wanted an umbrella that looked like a head of lettuce. Hasn't everyone? And now, via the Japanese design blog Spoon & Tamago , it's here. You'll have to order the Vegetabrella   from Japan for 4,725 yen (about $60), but that's a small inconvenience to be the first in your neighborhood (should it ever rain again) to shelter from the rain in such a nifty manner. Closed, it really does look like a fresh head of Romaine. Designed by Yurie Mano for H Concept and manufactured by the family-owned Tokyo Noble , it has a clever closure that looks like a produce band and stays slightly crinkled when unfolded and in use. Vegetabrella from Koncent in Japan (the site, unfortunately is only in Japanese)

Rain kept both the Yankees and Angels from working out on the field at Yankee Stadium today. And with the National Weather Service calling for at least a 70% chance of rain through Sunday, weather could wreak havoc with the American League Championship Series, which is scheduled to begin Friday afternoon. Game 1, scheduled to start at 4:45 p.m. PDT, is facing a forecast that shows an 80% chance of rain with temperatures in the low 40s and a wind chill below freezing. It looks just as bleak for Game 2. And that has Major League Baseball officials keeping their fingers crossed and their mouths shut.
