Tuesday’s Orioles-White Sox game was postponed because of rain and rescheduled as part of a single-admission doubleheader for Wednesday at Guaranteed Rate Field, beginning at 4:10 p.m.
Local forecasts have rain as a near-certainty for most of Tuesday, although Wednesday’s forecast calls for rain most of the day as well, albeit with warmer weather.
The Orioles had a similar doubleheader April 20 after a rainout the day before at Camden Yards with the Minnesota Twins.
Tuesday’s rainout means the Orioles closed their March/April schedule having allowed 73 home runs. The previous major league record before the calendar turned to May was 50 by the 1996 Detroit Tigers.
Starting pitchers Andrew Cashner and David Hess will have the opportunity to start May off on a better note for the Orioles (10-20).
Note: The Orioles added right-handed pitcher Shawn Armstrong to the 25-man roster Tuesday. The team acquired him off waivers Sunday from the Seattle Mariners.
