ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Game 2 of the AL championship series has been postponed because of rain.

It was rescheduled for 4:19 p.m. EDT Monday. The teams will lose their travel day, and the series is then slated to resume with Game 3 on Tuesday in Detroit.

Texas beat Detroit 3-2 in Saturday night's opener, a game delayed twice by rain in the top of the fifth inning, first for 41 minutes and then for 1:09.

Rain was forecast in the area for Sunday night.
