Next up for the Angels, a plague of locusts

April 19, 2011 |  6:23 pm

The weatherman has not been kind to the Angels on their current six-game road trip.

In Chicago, they endured three rain delays, brief snow flurries and a wind chill of 26 degrees. Their first game in Texas started with the temperature hovering at an uncomfortably humid 91. And then just before the team took batting practice Tuesday, the blue skies turned slate gray and rain and large hail-stones began to fall.

Oh, and there's a tornado watch in effect until late this evening. However, the forecast calls for the fast-moving front to pass through the Dallas area quickly, meaning Tuesday night's game figures to be delayed but not postponed.
