    I have a Rain Delay Question...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Heavy rains began soon after the Texas Rangers scored seven runs, leading to the postponement of Wednesday’s game against Oakland and washing away the stats of the worst inning ever by Athletics starter Gio Gonzalez(notes).

    Both teams have Thursday off, but the game won’t be made up until Oakland returns to Texas later this season. It could be made up when they play the final series before the All-Star break in July.

    Officially, the grand slam Mitch Moreland(notes) hit doesn’t count for the Texas Rangers. Neither does the needed boost for left-handed starter Matt Harrison(notes).

    Moreland hit what would have been his first slam and Harrison, who had lost four consecutive starts, limited Oakland to one hit over four scoreless innings for a 7-0 lead before heavy rains washed out the game—and all of the stats.

    “I hope this is the last black cloud that happens to us,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “It’s funny when things are not going right, everything seems to go wrong. We come out swinging the bat feeling good about ourselves again and we have to lose one like this.”

    All straight indications. Nothing will count for this game.
