ANAHEIM -- Sunday night's game between the Red Sox and Angels was postponed due to rain, resulting in a doubleheader scheduled for Monday. The third game of a four-game series between the teams was delayed from its 8 p.m. start time before being called just before 10:30 p.m. The Sox and Angels will play Monday at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST. The Red Sox' scheduled starter for Sunday night's game, Eduardo Rodriguez, will pitch the first game, with Steven Wright going in the nightcap. Sunday's rainout marks the first time the Angels have been rained out at home in over 20 years, with the last occurrence on June 16, 1995. "I'm serious man. Wherever we go, we bring rain," said David Ortiz. "Every series we go there's some rain going on. So I'm not surprised about that." The doubleheader makes an already challenging schedule a bit more uncomfortable for the Red Sox, who are traveling to Houston Tuesday morning. The team is expected to go straight from the airport to Minute Maid Park, where the Sox are slated to arrive about 2:30 p.m. "We have a stupid schedule were we have to travel on the day we fly that we play," Ortiz said. "I don't know how it's going to work out, but we'll see." For more Red Sox news, visit weei.com/redsox.
