Baltimore Orioles vs. Cleveland Indians Postponed Due to Rain on Saturday; Doubleheader on Sunday


On Saturday, the Baltimore Orioles announced that the scheduled game against the Cleveland Indians has been postponed, and will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday.

According to, the forecast calls for rain throughout the day and night on Saturday, and the National Weather Service has even issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Baltimore area. This led the Orioles and MLB to not waste any time in postponing the game for Saturday and making it up on Sunday.

The first game on Sunday is sticking with the originally scheduled 1:35 start time. The second game is slated to begin at 7:05.

This is a split-admission doubleheader, so after the first game, all the fans will leave, and the fans who had tickets to Saturday night’s game will be able to use those tickets to attend the second game. Those fans can also exchange their tickets for any remaining home game this season, more information can be found on

The pitching matchups will stay the same. Saturday’s starters, Chris Tillman and Cody Anderson, will go in game one on Sunday, and Ubaldo Jimenez and Trevor Bauer will start game two.

This news stings a little bit for Baltimore. First of all, it could have a negative effect on the Orioles’ starting staff, as the team doesn’t have an off-day until July 9th, so a sixth starter may be needed at some point in the coming days.

Second, the Orioles are rolling. They have won eight of their last eleven coming into today, including a comeback win on Friday night, and when a team is playing that well, they want to keep playing, and an off-day, especially an unexpected one, could slow them down.
