Baltimore Orioles: Schedule in flux
The Baltimore Orioles will take on the New York Yankees tonight and tomorrow at a Camden Yards. It of course will be the Birds’ home opener. It was supposed to be against the Miami Marlins, however due to the COVID-19 outbreak in their clubhouse their season has been placed on hold.
So New York comes in tonight, and they were also supposed to be in Baltimore from August 3rd-5th – next week. Monday and Tuesdays games in essence have been rescheduled for tonight and tomorrow. Wednesday August 5th’s game is still on against New York.
Presumably, if Miami is able to continue their season next week, those games will be played on Monday and Tuesday. In fact, you might even see doubleheader’s, so as to makeup the games canceled earlier in the week in Miami. All of that remains to be seen. If Miami is unable to continue their season, presumably those dates will just remain as off days for the O’s.
The “disjointed series” with New York begins tonight at Camden Yards. Alex Wojchiekowski gets the start for the Orioles, and he’ll be opposed by New York’s Gerrit Cole. Game time is set for just after 7:30 PM.
