MLB: Arizona at Texas, ppd., rain

May 29, 2013 at 9:41 PM

ARLINGTON, Texas, May 29 (UPI) -- The scheduled game between Arizona and Texas Wednesday was postponed due to rain and unplayable field conditions.

Thunderstorms moved into the area about 6 p.m. local time and the high winds that accompanied them caused a delay in covering the infield.

With additional rain on the way and with the infield having become a sea of mud, the game was postponed.

The teams had been scheduled to play a two-game series after meeting in a double header Monday in Phoenix.

Because Arizona has a day game scheduled in Chicago against the Cubs Friday, no attempt will be made to play a double header against the Rangers Thursday. A single game will be played Thursday and the postponed game will be made up at a yet-to-be-determined date.
