The Orioles' game against the New York Yankees that was postponed Tuesday because of rain will be made up as part of a split-admission doubleheader Sept. 12 at 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m.
There was a possibility that the game would be made up during Thursday’s common day off between the two teams, but they agreed to reschedule the game for the Yankees' final trip to Camden Yards next month.
Tickets for Tuesday’s postponed game will be good for the 1:05 p.m. game Sept. 12. Fans unable to attend the makeup game can exchange their tickets for any remaining home game on a dollar-for-dollar basis. All exchanges are subject to availability and must be done by Sept. 5.
Stadium lot parking passes for Tuesday’s game will be valid for the 1:05 p.m. game only Sept. 12. Ticket exchanges can be made at the Camden Yards box office or by mail at Baltimore Orioles, Attn: August 12 Rainout, 333 W. Camden St., Baltimore, Md. 21201.
Several factors went into the decision to schedule the doubleheader for Sept. 12 instead of Sept. 13.
The Orioles-Yankees game Sept. 13, with a 1:05 p.m. start, is scheduled for the Fox television broadcast. And that day also figures to be busy in downtown Baltimore for the Star-Spangled Spectacular events.
After the rainout, the Orioles announced their starting pitchers for the next four games.
Right-hander Chris Tillman will face the Yankees' Michael Pineda on Wednesday in the series finale. Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen is scheduled to face right-hander Corey Kluber in the series opener against the Cleveland Indians on Friday.
On Saturday, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will face his former team. He'll be opposed by Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco. Right-hander Kevin Gausman is scheduled to face Cleveland left-hander T.J. House on Sunday in the series finale.
