Rain in the forecast for Game 2 of the ALCS

5 Comments

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.

Texas rode its dynamic bullpen to a 3-2 Game 1 win. It’ll be Max Scherzer vs. Derek Holland in Game 2.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
