ARLINGTON -- Tuesday's exhibition game between the Reds and Rangers at Globe Life Park was canceled due to rain and thunderstorms passing through north Texas.

The game will not be rescheduled. Fans holding tickets to the game may exchange them for any 2018 Rangers home game, subject to availability with the exception of Thursday's regular-season opener against the Astros.

ARLINGTON -- Tuesday's exhibition game between the Reds and Rangers at Globe Life Park was canceled due to rain and thunderstorms passing through north Texas.

The game will not be rescheduled. Fans holding tickets to the game may exchange them for any 2018 Rangers home game, subject to availability with the exception of Thursday's regular-season opener against the Astros.

It was the first time the Rangers have been rained out this spring and the first rainout at Globe Life Park since April 17, 2016, against the Orioles.

The Rangers open the regular season on Thursday against the defending World Series-champion Astros at Globe Life Park. The Rangers' 47th opener in Arlington is scheduled to begin at 2:40 p.m. CT with left-hander Cole Hamels starting opposite Houston right-hander Justin Verlander.

The Reds open their season at home at 4:10 p.m. ET against the Nationals, also on Thursday. The scheduled starters are right-hander Homer Bailey for the Reds and right-hander Max Scherzer, the National League Cy Young Award winner the past two seasons, for the Nationals.
