    Sunday night's Game 2 of the ALCS between the Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers has been postponed.

    Officials said the games is being postponed due to the continued threat of rain and poor field conditions.  Saturday night's Game 1, which the Rangers won 3-2, was delayed twice due to storms.

    "We felt with the forecast that we had that we didn't want to experience what we did last night. With the forecast for this evening, it appears that it's going to be a duplication of what we saw," Rangers president Nolan Ryan said Sunday. "The one thing we're concerned about is the integrity of the game and not put either team in a situation where there is a possibility the elements could affect the outcome of the game."

    Instead of being played tonight, the game will be played Monday at 3:19 p.m. at the Ballpark in Arlington.  Tickets and parking passes for Sunday are, of course, good for Monday as well.

    Monday was originally going to be a travel day for the teams as they headed to Detroit for games 3, 4 and 5.

    Game 3 is still scheduled for Tuesday in Detroit.
