Orioles postponed tonight, split twinbill Wednesday

BOSTON - The Orioles won’t need a starting pitcher tonight.

The rotation shuffling and bullpen mining will carry over to Wednesday’s split doubleheader at Fenway Park.

Rain and a forecast with no window conspired to force the postponement of tonight’s game, which will be made up Wednesday at 1:05 p.m. The nightcap is set to begin at 7:10 p.m.

Jimmy Yacabonis was supposed to start tonight and Wednesday’s series finale - which also ends the road portion of the schedule - was listed as TBD, with left-hander John Means a candidate to make his major league debut.

The Red Sox are pushing left-handers David Price to Game 1 and Chris Sale to Game 2.

Today marks the seventh Orioles game to be postponed this season. Two on the road, both of them in Boston.

America’s most beloved weather.

The Red Sox are enduring their third postponement, including the July 25 game at Camden Yards.

The Orioles are 2-15 against the Red Sox, who posted their club-record 106th win last night.
