ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The finale of a four-game series between the Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers has been postponed because of heavy rain.

Officials made the decision Sunday morning, about five hours before the scheduled pitch, because of heavy rain and the forecast for more strong storms throughout the day and into the night.

The game will be made up June 20.

Both teams are also off Monday, but because the possibility of more rain the decision was made to wait until June for the makeup.

It is the second weekend in a row that the Orioles had a game postponed because of rain.
