Wednesday night's game between the Texas Rangers and Baltimore Orioles was postponed by rain and will be played Thursday.
The game was delayed for more than an hour before officials decided on the postponement. It will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Thursday beginning at 4:05 p.m. The second game will not start before 7:05, the starting time of Thursday's originally scheduled game.
Texas won the first two games of the series by a collective 24-6 score. The Rangers have won seven in a row over the Orioles, highlighted by Josh Hamilton's four-homer performance Tuesday night.
Moments before the announcement, several Texas players ran from the outfield and slid across the tarp.
