ANAHEIM, California (AP) -- The Los Angeles Angels' Thursday night game has been postponed following the death of rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart.
Manager Mike Scioscia says the team will get together, however.
The 22-year-old Adenhart was a passenger in a car that police say was struck by a motorist who ran a red light. Two other people in the car also died and another was injured. Adenhart had started for Los Angeles just a few hours earlier.
The Angels had been scheduled to play Oakland Thursday night.
