Orioles, White Sox postponed again; will play in empty stadium Wednesday

Baltimore, Md. (AP) -

For the second day in a row the game between the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox has been postponed due to unrest on the streets of Baltimore.

Both games were rescheduled after riots that followed the funeral of Freddie Gray, who died of injuries sustained while in police custody.

Wednesday's game between the Orioles and White Sox will now take place at 1:05 p.m. central time in Baltimore, but the game will be closed to the public, according to a news release from the Orioles organization.

The two games that were postponed on Monday and Tuesday will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Thursday, May 28.

The Orioles have also moved their next home series, against the Tampa Bay Rays, to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. Despite being in Florida, the Orioles will serve as the home team.
