ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays played in the cold after the rain Wednesday.

It was only 39 degrees at first pitch, the coldest start ever for a day game at Rangers Ballpark - 40 degrees colder than when the two teams played Tuesday night.

With winds gusting near 20 mph, it felt closer to freezing when the series finale started at 2:34 p.m. local time after a rain delay of 1 hour, 29 minutes.

The only colder start at Rangers Ballpark, which is in its 20th season, was a night game against Boston on April 7, 2007, when it was 38 degrees.

Texas is more known for the summer heat. Just two seasons ago, the temperature was at least 100 degrees for 27 games at Rangers Ballpark.
