ARLINGTON, Texas -- The game between the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers was postponed by rain Saturday night, pushing back Jon Garland's shot at becoming the first nine-game winner in the major-leagues.
The game was called after a delay of 2 hours, 45 minutes. It won't be made up until the White Sox return to Texas on Aug. 29-31. The teams will play a single game on Sunday, when there is a 60 percent chance of more rain. The pitching matchups were not immediately announced.
Garland (8-1) was scheduled Saturday to face Chan Ho Park (4-1), who has already matched his win total from last season. Just before the game was rained out, Park came out in front of the dugout during a drizzle and threw a few tosses with a bullpen catcher.
Chicago has the best record in the major-leagues at 33-16. The Rangers have won seven straight games, the longest active streak in the majors.
