ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Los Angeles Angels were rained out at home for the first time in 20 years Sunday, with heavy downpours forcing the postponement of their game against the Boston Red Sox.

Los Angeles will host its first doubleheader since 2003 on Monday.

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. The remnants of Tropical Storm Dolores provided slight drought relief and caused minor inconveniences for Angels fans, who hadn't lost a game to rain since June 16, 1995.
