ARLINGTON -- Consistent downpour and wet playing conditions finally led Major League Baseball to postpone Saturday's Rangers-Angels game to Sunday.
First pitch had been scheduled for 3:05 p.m. but the game had been delayed until at least 5 p.m. The rain never went away, though, and it was called right about 7 p.m.
The game will be played as part of a split doubleheader on Sunday with games scheduled for 12:05 p.m. and 6:05 p.m. Saturday's makeup game is the 6:05 p.m. one, so fans who had tickets to Saturday's game can only use them for the night game.
Sunday's original game, meanwhile, was pushed up two hours. Game 1 will be when the Rangers do all their fan appreciation activities for the final home game of the regular season.
Here is other pertinent info for fans:
* Rangers Ballpark parking lots will open at 10 a.m., and gates will open at 10:30 a.m. for the noon game. For the 6:05 p.m. game, gates will open at 5:05 p.m.
* Both games will be televised by Fox Sports Southwest.
* Fans who had tickets to Saturday's game can only use them for the 6:05 p.m. game on Sunday.
* Yu Darvish will start Game 1 for the Rangers, while Derek Holland -- Saturday's scheduled starter -- will start Game 2. Texas manager Ron Washington said Geovany Soto would catch Game 1, and Mike Napoli would catch Game 2. For the Angels, Zack Greinke will start Game 1 and Ervin Santana will start Game 2.
* This is the first home split doubleheader in Rangers history. They have played six split doubleheaders on the road, including April 21 this season at Detroit.
