The Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves are set to play a double header today after last night’s game was postponed due to weather. A line up of severe storms trekked across SunTrust Park just before first pitch, forcing the teams to most the game to this afternoon, prior to the series finale tonight. The Rangers are currently two games back in the American League Wildcard standings. First pitch to game one [on KPLT 1490am] is set for 12:35 pm. The night cap begins at 6:35.
In other Major League Baseball news, the Boston Red Sox are under fire for using Apple watches to steal signs from the New York Yankees. The MLB is investigating.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six game suspension has been held up by the arbitrator, Harold Henderson, who overlooked Elliott’s appeal hearing last week. However, the decision comes after a 3:00 pm deadline yesterday, meaning Elliott will be eligible to play this coming Sunday night against the New York Giants. Last year’s rushing champion was also in attendance at the NFL Players Association’s hearing to file a temporary restraining order on Elliott’s behalf. A decision will be made by 5:00 pm Friday evening on whether the restraining order will be put in place. If so, Elliott would be allowed to play out the 2017 season in its entirety.
