Rangers, Angels in a lengthy rain delay

The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels are currently stuck in a two-plus hour rain delay in Arlington. The tarps have been on the field since Friday night's game, and the latest is that the game would not be starting any earlier than 5 p.m. CT, and we are already approaching 30 minutes past that time.

Both teams really want to get this game in today, so that they do not have to make this one up, but if it does have to be rescheduled odds are that the two will play a double-header on Sunday.

If the game is played, Derek Holland will be on the mound for the Rangers and he will be going up against Angels' Ervin Santana. Both teams are fighting for playoff positioning, and playing a double-header on Sunday could mess with their bullpen.

Currently, the rain is pouring in Arlington and the outcome for the game to be played seems bleak. Weather.com has 95 to 100 percent chance of rain from now until 11 p.m., and then after that it drops off to just 70 percent chance of rain.
