BALTIMORE (AP) — The split doubleheader Saturday between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles has been postponed because of the expected bad weather associated with Hurricane Irene.
The afternoon game will be held on Sept. 8, previously an off day for both teams. The time of that game will be announced at a later time.
The game originally scheduled for Saturday night will become part of a split doubleheader on Sunday. The first game is slated to start at 1:35 p.m., and the nightcap is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. New York and Baltimore will also play Monday night, a game already on the schedule.
