Reds-Rangers spring finale canceled by rain, season starts Thursday

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The scheduled spring training finale between the Texas Rangers and Cincinnati Reds at Globe Life Park was canceled because of inclement weather Tuesday.

Rangers officials announced the decision several hours before the scheduled first pitch of the day game, when it was already raining. There was a significant chance of more rain and possibly thunderstorms throughout the afternoon.

The Rangers open the regular season at home against the Houston Astros at 2:30 p.m. Thursday with lefthander Cole Hamels taking the mound for Texas while Justin Verlander gets the start for Houston.

The Reds were headed back to Cincinnati, where there is a chance of rain for their opener against the Washington Nationals.
