Game 1 of the ALCS Saturday night in Arlington, Texas featured nearly two hours of rain delays.
Game 2 on Sunday could see much of the same.
According to Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com, there’s a 60 to 70 percent chance of thunderstorms Sunday night in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area and the ALCS umpiring crew has been made aware that pauses in action may be necessary.
If the game has to be suspended or can’t be fit in at all, the Rangers and Tigers will lose their scheduled Monday off-day in order to fit the contest in before the two teams fly to Detroit for Game 3 Tuesday.
