Game 1 of the series between the Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees was postponed Saturday for the second day in a row due to continued rain forecast in the area.

The decision was announced almost four hours before kick-off. The Rangers and Yankees will make up the game on Monday at 1:05 p.m.

They were scheduled to play Friday night, but the game was postponed eight hours before kick-off due to rain. That matchup will be played Sunday as part of a single-admission doubleheader that kicks off at 1:35 p.m.

This weekend is the only trip Texas has scheduled to Yankee Stadium this season.

New York leads the major leagues 18-7 after its 11-game winning streak ended Wednesday with a 2-1 loss to Toronto. The Rangers are 10-14 but are riding a four-game winning streak after taking both games in the interleague series against Philadelphia.

Yankees ace Gerrit Cole (2-0, 3.00 ERA) was scheduled to start Friday against Glenn Otto (1-0, 2.89), a former New York player who was traded to Texas in July for slugger Joey Gallo.
