Rain delays Angels in Chicago

April 16, 2011 |  1:17 pm

6a00d8341c630a53ef01538de1d3b2970b-800wi The tarp has been on the field for nearly two hours and now officials are saying the start of Saturday's game between the Angels and Chicago White Sox will be delayed at least an hour, to 4 p.m. CDT. But with a sizable weather front blowing in from the west, that may be wishful thinking.

A steady drizzle has been falling on Chicago's South Side for most of the afternoon and the temperature has dipped to 38 degrees. If the teams can't play Saturday, a doubleheader -- weather permitting -- likely will be scheduled for Sunday. Friday's opener of the three-game series was stopped twice by rain and the bottom of the ninth began beneath a downpour.
