BALTIMORE — The game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles has been postponed because of the threat of all-day rain, leaving both teams with yet another doubleheader down the road.
It was the second rainout during the scheduled four-game series. In addition, the start of Saturday’s game was delayed by rain for 1 hour, 44 minutes.
The rainout Sunday will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Aug. 25. Baltimore and New York will also play a doubleheader at Camden Yards on July 9 as a result of Thursday’s postponement.
New York has had seven games either postponed or suspended by rain this season.
It was the fifth game that Baltimore has had postponed by rain.
Baltimore has endured much more anguish when playing games. The Orioles have lost seven in a row, tying their longest skid of the season, and owns the worst record in the majors (17-41).
