The Orioles' game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday has been postponed because of inclement weather and will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader Wednesday beginning at 4:05 p.m. at Camden Yards.

Gates will open at 3 p.m. and Game 2 will begin approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game, but no earlier than 7:05 p.m.

Fans who have tickets for Tuesday's game must exchange them to attend Wednesday's doubleheader. Only tickets for Wednesday's game will be honored for both games of the doubleheader. Prepaid parking permits for either Tuesday or Wednesday will be valid for the doubleheader.

Those with tickets to Tuesday's rainout who can not attend the doubleheader can exchange their tickets for any of the other four remaining home games this season. They can also exchange their tickets for any of the games against Toronto from April 19-21, 2016.

Right-handers Miguel Gonzalez will start Game 1 of the doubleheader and Kevin Gausman will start Game 2.

Gonzalez was activated from the disabled list to start Tuesday's game, which would have allowed him to be an option to start Sunday's regular-season finale. But now, right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez will likely start Sunday against the New York Yankees.

Right-hander Marcus Stroman will start Game 1 on Wednesday and right-hander R.A. Dickey is scheduled to pitch Game 2.

The Miguel "El Mariachi" Gonzalez T-shirts will still be given away to all fans beginning when the ballpark gates open at 3 p.m.
