A strong storm swept over Globe Life Park in Arlington Sunday, postponing the series finale between the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles. The game has been rescheduled for June 20, a common day off for the teams.
The Rangers announced through press release their decision for the postponement Sunday morning based on a weather forecast that called for “moderate to heavy rain and showers in the area throughout the day on Sunday and Sunday night and continuing on Monday.”
With a scheduled off day on Monday, the postponement gives the Rangers two consecutive days off after having played 13 straight games. The Rangers begin a series with the Astros Tuesday.
The Orioles also have Monday off and will play the first of a four-game series with Toronto Tuesday night in Baltimore.
The June 20 rescheduled contest will create a lot of flying around the country of the Orioles. They’ll play in Toronto Sunday, June 19, soar to Texas for the Monday makeup game, and then jump back on a plane back to Baltimore for a two-game set with the San Diego Padres beginning June 21.
The Orioles have had two games rained out so far this young season, and by The Rainout Blog’s unofficial count, have had game action delayed 201 minutes by inclement weather.
