ARLINGTON (AP) – The Texas Rangers have started a game in record heat for the second time this month.

The temperature was 105 degrees at Rangers Ballpark for the first pitch Sunday against Toronto. The game started just after 7 p.m. local time.

That matched the previous high temperature at Rangers Ballpark, which opened in 1994. It was also 105 degrees when the Rangers played Oakland on July 8.

While triple-digit temperatures are not unusual during the Texas summer, the previous record high temperature at Rangers Ballpark before the two 105-degree nights this month had been 103 degrees on Aug. 3, 2008, against Toronto. That also was a night game.
