A's-Rangers game in Texas postponed; teams to play doubleheader June 8

Khris Davis will have to wait another day to homer in his fourth consecutive game.

The A's game against the Rangers in Arlington, Texas, was postponed because of heavy rain. The game was supposed to start at 5:05 p.m. PT, but was called off at 5:53.

The teams will make up the game as part of a doubleheader on June 8. The originally scheduled game is set to start at 6:05 p.m. PT.

According to Weather.com, there was a minimum 45 percent chance of rain in Arlington through midnight local time.

The A's and Rangers are scheduled to play the series finale Sunday at 12:05 p.m. PT, and the forecast calls for lots of sunshine. Oakland won't adjust its rotation as Brett Anderson, originally scheduled to pitch Sunday, will remain on turn.

Marco Estrada was scheduled to start for the A's on Saturday, but he'll now go April 20 against the Blue Jays in Oakland.

A's vs. Rangers live stream: How to watch Saturday's MLB game online and on MyTeams

The A's continue their three-game series against the Rangers on Saturday and come off of an 8-6 win on Friday night.

Marco Estrada will start on the bump for the A's as he seeks his first win of the season. He got off to a shaky start against the Orioles when he allowed six runs in four innings during the 12-4 win.

Adrian Sampson will take starting honors for the Rangers. He too is seeking his first win of the season. Last season, with the Rangers, Sampson was 0-3 with a 3.57 ERA in four September starts. Now, the word on the street is he appears to be much sharper this season thanks to some development on his slider. 

Here's how you can watch A's vs. Rangers on NBC Sports California and streaming online.

When: Saturday, April 13, at 5:05 p.m. PT (pregame at 4:30 p.m.)

Now with A's, Jurickson Profar reflects on his time with Rangers

Now with A's, Jurickson Profar reflects on his time with Rangers

When Jurickson Profar arrived at Globe Life Park on Friday prior to the A's 8-6 win over the Rangers, it was familiar territory with unfamiliar circumstances.

Profar was acquired by the Oakland A's from the Rangers as part of a three-team deal. Before putting on the Green and Gold, Texas was all he knew. 

"This was home for a long time," Profar told reporters before the game.

The infielder spent five seasons with the Rangers, and is now entrenched as the A's second baseman, so this reunion was bittersweet -- and a bit confusing.

"It's different -- the other side of the building," he said. "It was the first time I got to see the visitor's clubhouse. I've never been in there."

He got a little lost on the opposite side of the park and smiled as he said he had to ask where everything was.

Alas, he saw his former teammates and it appeared he was happy to be "back home."

This was a couple of days after Profar called up his former teammate Adrian Beltre on his birthday. Beltre may have retired, but he was not too busy to give Profar some hitting tips -- and they appeared to have worked. The 26-year-old went 4-for-5 with a home run and five RBI in Tuesday's 13-2 win in Baltimore.

It's understandable Profar misses the Rangers, but I think it's safe to say the A's are more than happy to have him on the team.

Oh, and it has to be said: In Profar's first at-bat against his former team, he hit a double.
