Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts was officially scratched from the lineup about 20 minutes before tonight's scheduled first pitch because he was dealing with some stomach pain.
Roberts went to the hospital for some further testing and at this point, team officials are unsure what it is that is ailing the second baseman.
It's far too early to speculate whether Roberts will be able to play in tomorrow's doubleheader.
The first game will start at 4:35 and it will feature tonight's scheduled pitching matchup between Zach Britton and Colby Lewis. The pitching matchup in the second game is Jake Arrieta versus Matt Harrison.
The Orioles will be able to make a roster move between games if the bullpen is further taxed after Game One.
