BALTIMORE -- After a delay of more than 2 1/2 hours eight outs into the Orioles' series finale against the Red Sox on Wednesday night, the game was called. It was the O's sixth postponement of the season.
The game will be made up as part of a split (separate admission) doubleheader on Saturday, Aug. 11, at 1:05 p.m. ET. The second game will begin as scheduled at 7:05 p.m. ET.
Tickets and prepaid parking passes for Wednesday's postponed game will be automatically honored for the 1:05 p.m. ET game on Aug. 11 and do not need to be exchanged.
Fans unable to attend the makeup game can exchange their July 25 game tickets for any remaining home game this season on a "dollar-for-dollar" basis. All exchanges are subject to availability and must be completed before Aug. 11.
Complimentary tickets are non-exchangeable. Fans who purchased tickets via StubHub for the July 25 game will need to contact StubHub directly regarding their policy for postponed events. Fans who purchased Bark at Oriole Park ticket packages will receive a separate e-mail regarding exchange policies.
None of the stats from the game, which was stopped with Boston leading, 5-0, in the top of the second inning, will count. The three-game series was marred with rain, with stoppages on both Monday and Tuesday and a flash-flood warning on Wednesday.
The Orioles' rotation will remain in order for the first three games of the four-game series that starts Thursday vs. the Rays, though the club has TBD for Sunday, with the potential for Dylan Bundy to come back on short rest after throwing only 30 pitches on Wednesday.
