Pirates-Orioles postponed due to rain

Tonight’s game between the Orioles and Pirates at Camden Yards has been postponed due to rain and has been rescheduled for Thursday at 7:05 p.m.

Tickets for tonight’s game will be honored Thursday. No exchange is necessary and fans should bring their original tickets to the ballpark gates for admission.

Eutaw Street gates will open at 5 p.m. 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.

Fans unable to attend the May 1 makeup game may exchange tonight’s tickets for any remaining home game this season on a “dollar-for-dollar” basis. All exchanges are subject to availability and must be completed by June 30. Complimentary tickets are non-exchangeable. StubHub tickets are also non-exchangeable, but may be resold on StubHub up until 7:05 p.m. on Thursday. All tickets are valid for the makeup game.

Ticket exchanges may be performed at the box office or submitted in writing along with the original tickets and mailed via certified mail by June 30, 2014 to:

Baltimore Orioles
Attention: April 29 Rainout
333 West Camden Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

Unfortunately, the forecast is equally bad Wednesday night, which could force a doubleheader on Thursday.

We’re assuming that Chris Tillman will start Wednesday, weather permitting, with Bud Norris pushed back to Thursday.

Third baseman Manny Machado will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday if the Orioles are able to play. However, left-hander Troy Patton’s 25-game suspension won’t end until Thursday.

The Orioles want to re-sign Steve Pearce, but he would be eligible to play for them right away only if the roster remains at 24 players. Machado would be the 25th. Therefore, the Orioles must reach agreement with Pearce before Machado is activated.

Make sense?

Patton thew a scoreless inning today for Triple-A Norfolk in Game 1 of a doubleheader.
