BALTIMORE (AP) — The Texas Rangers received another day to savor their stature as the only unbeaten team in the major leagues after their game Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles was postponed by rain.
The teams will play a traditional doubleheader on Saturday starting at 4:30 p.m.
A steady rainshower hit the area early in the day and never really let up. The scheduled 7:05 p.m. start was delayed for about an hour before the game was finally postponed.
Texas came to town after going 6-0 on a homestand against Boston and Seattle. If the Rangers can win the opener Saturday, they will match the best start in franchise history (7-0 in 1996).
Baltimore is 5-1.
