The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels game on Saturday has been washed away due to rain that was in the Arlington area all day, and is scheduled to continue into the night. The two teams will now play a day-night doubleheader on Sunday.

The first game is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. CT with the second game beginning at 6:05 p.m. Originally, Sunday's game was to be played at 2:05 p.m. The later start just means that the Rangers will have a late night flight as they travel to Oakland to finish out the regular season.

The pitching matchups for Sunday's games are expected to be Derek Holland going up against Ervin Santana, and Yu Darvish up against Zack Greinke in the second game of the doubleheader.

Weather is expected to be just fine for Sunday with only a 30 percent chance of rain in the afternoon to evening hours in Arlington.
