BALTIMORE -- Tuesday's series opener between the Orioles and Rays was postponed due to inclement weather. The game, which was supposed to be Alex Cobb against Jake Faria, will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Saturday, May 12. The Orioles will start Cobb on Wednesday and Faria will take the ball for the Rays, who will pitch Chris Archer on Thursday. 

The first game of the May 12 doubleheader will begin at 3:05 p.m. ET, followed by the regularly scheduled game approximately 30 minutes after the first game concludes.

Tuesday's game marks the first Orioles home rainout of the year. They were also rained out in Boston on April 26. It also comes at a key time, given that the O's are banged up. Jonathan Schoop, Mark Trumbo and Zach Britton are on the disabled list, and Tim Beckham is headed that way and not playing well. The club has also lost 11 of its past 13 games.

Tickets and parking for Tuesday's postponed game will not be automatically honored for the May 12 doubleheader. Fans must exchange the value of their tickets and parking from Tuesday's game at the Oriole Park box office toward any remaining home game this season, including the May 12 doubleheader, based on availability.

Fans who purchased tickets on StubHub for Tuesday's game will need to contact StubHub regarding their policy for postponed events.

Fans holding tickets for the originally scheduled 7:05 p.m. game on Saturday, May 12, should use those tickets for both games of the doubleheader.

All ballpark gates will open at 2 p.m., and the parking lots will open at 1:30 p.m. Both games will be broadcast on MASN2 and on the Orioles Radio Network, including flagship station 105.7 The Fan.
