ARLINGTON, Texas -- Heavy rain arrived at Rangers Ballpark at 5:50 p.m. (CDT), cutting short Arizona's batting practice and sending the Diamondbacks scurrying for cover.
Fans were warned and urged to take cover via public address before the storm hit.
The scheduled start time for Rangers-Diamondbacks is 7:05 p.m. (CDT).
The Ballpark ground crew had a difficult time getting the tarp on the field because of high wind that accompanied the downpour. The left side of the infield got a six-minute soaking before the tarp was in place.
