Arlington, TX (Sports Network) – A threat of inclement weather has forced
officials to move the start time of Saturday’s game between the Angels and
Rangers.

Instead of a 7:05 p.m. CT start, the contest will now be played at 11:05 a.m.

“With the possibility of heavy rain affecting Saturday night’s game, we feel
it is prudent to start earlier in the day,” said Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan in a
statement Friday. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our
fans, but we believe this is the best alternative given the circumstances and
the fact it is the last weekend of the regular season.”

The Rangers are still alive for one of two wild card spots in the American
League.
