The Arizona Diamondbacks were set to begin a nine-game road trip Wednesday night, but poor weather in Arlington kept Kirk Gibson and Co. from continuing their home-and-home Interleague series with the Texas Rangers.

A severe thunderstorm passed over Arlington Stadium about an hour before first pitch, and after surveying the field with other officials, managers Kirk Gibson and Ron Washington deemed it unplayable and agreed at around 6:00 p.m. MST to postpone the game.

Wednesday night's postponed game will be made up at a later date.

The D-backs and Rangers will play a single game Thursday morning.

Brandon McCarthy (2-3, 4.36), who pitched for the Rangers from 2007-09, will still get the nod for the D-backs. Texas will counter with rookie right-hander Justin Grimm (4-3, 4.05).
