BALTIMORE—The Orioles’ scheduled game against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night was postponed by rain. The announcement came about an hour and 45 minutes after the scheduled 7:05 p.m. starting time.
The game will be made up on August 18th at 3:05 p.m., which was a mutual offday.
The Cubs will be coming from Washington, where they’ll be concluding a series against the Nationals. The Orioles will be returning from a series in Toronto.
Jordan Lyles (5-4, 4.50 earned-run average), who was scheduled to pitch on Wednesday, will open the four-game series in Kansas City on Thursday night. He’ll face Kris Bubic (0-3, 9.33).
Bruce Zimmermann, Tyler Wells and Dean Kremer will pitch the final three games of the Royals series. Kyle Bradish is scheduled to pitch on Monday night in Toronto.
This was the third rainout of the season for the Orioles.
