The Orioles were hoping to avoid their third rainout of the early season and second at Camden Yards.

They didn’t.

Friday night’s game against the A’s was postponed around 6:30 p.m. – and it has been rescheduled as part of a Saturday, day-night doubleheader.

The first game is scheduled for 1:05 pm. with Mike Wright facing former Oriole Rich Hill. The second, separate admission game will begin as regularly scheduled – at 7:05 p.m.

Fans with tickets for Friday’s game can use them for Saturday’s afternoon contest. No exchange is needed. If fans can’t attend Saturday’s make-up, they can exchange Friday’s tickets for any remaining home games on a “dollar-for-dollar basis.”

Ubaldo Jimenez, who was supposed to start Friday night, will pitch the nightcap against Oakland right-hander Jesse Hahn.

The Orioles don’t have any other doubleheaders scheduled, though they still need to announce the make up for the rainout that occurred Saturday, April 9 against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays next come to town from June 24 to June 26.

The Orioles’ other postponement so far this year, Sunday, April 17 in Texas, will be made up with a one-game trip to Arlington on June 20.
