BALTIMORE — On the night Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was poised to make his return from the disabled list, Mother Nature had other ideas as Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates was postponed due to rain.
The game is currently scheduled to be made up Thursday at 7:05 p.m., but Wednesday’s forecast looked even worse as rain continued to hit the Baltimore area. With the teams sharing a common off-day on Thursday, the possibility exists that a day-night doubleheader will be required to play the two-game interleague series.
Weather permitting, starting pitcher Chris Tillman is now scheduled to take the hill on Wednesday night with Pirates right-hander Charlie Morton opposing him.
For fans holding tickets for Tuesday night’s game, no exchange is required as they can be used for Thursday’s game. The Orioles provided the following additional information regarding Tuesday’s postponement:
Eutaw Street gates will open at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, with remaining ballpark gates opening at 5:30 p.m. Ballpark parking lots open at 3:30 p.m. and prepaid parking permits dated for April 29 are valid for Thursday’s game.
