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.
