Why, that's mere minutes away! It feels like it's been the top of the fifth inning forever, because it has been the top of the fifth inning forever, but one figures we'll reach a conclusion pretty shortly after play resumes. Which it will, in mere minutes.
The forecast is supposedly good now, and they don't expect there to be any more rain, so we can all cross our fingers. The rain that they did get didn't show up on the radar though until shortly before it arrived, though, so, yeah.
To refresh your memory, as soon as play picks up, it'll be 3-2 Rangers, and the Tigers will have two outs and the bases loaded. Alex Avila will bat, and he'll bat against lefty reliever Mike Gonzalez, who's taking over for C.J. Wilson. Ron Washington said during the delay that Alexi Ogando will handle the sixth, so that's how this maps out. Gonzalez --> reliever if Gonzalez doesn't get Avila out? --> Ogando.
As for the Tigers, Rick Porcello is warming up in the bullpen, and he'll come in in relief of Justin Verlander. The implications for Detroit's pitching rotation in this series are absolutely staggering. Just staggering.
