The Angels were rained out at home for just the 16th time in their 55-year franchise history. They hadn’t even had a rain delay in a stretch of 359 regular-season home games since April 24, 2011.
San Diego’s game against Colorado also was rained out in Southern California, which is normally drenched only in sun.
