Texas Rangers Day Game Postponed
The Texas Rangers bats came alive in the third inning, but rain in the area forced the game into a delay in the bottom of the fourth inning, and then eventually into postponement.
Mitch Moreland had hit what would have been his first career grand slam as part of the Ranger’s seven run third inning, and Texas starter Matt Harrison, who had lost four consecutive starts, was dealing as he limited Oakland to just one hit over four scoreless innings before the rain started and washed out the game, along with all the stats.
The skies were already threatening the game with rain when the Rangers sent 13 players to the plate in a seven-run third inning. All the runs were charged to the Athletics starter Gio Gonzales who left the game with two outs and the bases loaded.
The game was eventually called after a delay of 2 hours and 14 minutes, when it was still pouring rain with a forecast of more for at least two to three hours. The postponement was the 21st of this season, matching the total of all of last year.
Despite both teams having Thursday off, the game won’t be made up until Oakland return to Texas later this season. Most likely when they play the final series before the All-Star Break
