A nasty spell of weather this month continues to jumble the Orioles’ schedule, with an alteration made for Wednesday’s game in Detroit after the weather gave the team an unscheduled day off Monday in Boston.

Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park was originally scheduled for a 6:40 p.m. first pitch. But with a wintry mix expected in Detroit on Wednesday, the game time was moved to 1:10 p.m.

A doubleheader is already scheduled Friday between the Tigers and Kansas City Royals, so the teams are doing everything they can to fit this series’ games in.

Despite snow flurries all day Tuesday in Detroit, the evening forecast calls for weather to be clear, albeit with highs below freezing. Temperatures on Thursday, when the series finale is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. as well, are expected to be in the mid-40s.
