Arlington, Texas -- The Texas Rangers announced that tonight's scheduled contest against the Oakland Athletics has been postponed due to heavy rainfall and a forecast that calls for continued precipitation over the next several hours. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader between the Rangers and Athletics on Friday, May 29 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, with the first contest beginning at 4:05 p.m.
